Born in Barcelona in 1966, Alfredo Palmero is considered one of the most interesting Spanish painters on the international art scene.

Alfredo Palmero belongs to the third generation of a family of artists, which began with his grandfather, Maestro Palmero, with whom he shared a passion for painting from an early age.

Palmero is renowned for his realistic, sometimes surreal, paintings of women. In his series of portraits “Meninas,” tradition meets modernity. The reference to the works of the old masters is clear; hence, his series is named after the famous painting “Las Meninas” by Diego Velázquez, one of the most important portraitists of the Spanish Baroque.

Palmero has created his Meninas as symbols of femininity and fertility, allegories of the mysteries of women and their role in society.

For these reasons, as well as the beauty of his work, we have chosen one of Palmero’s Meninas as the official image of the 1st edition of the IAFF in Dublin.
