Jesus Zamarron

Zamarrón is a graphic artist whose work has been presented in different media: internet, television, video, print, as well as art galleries. He has exhibited his work both in Spain, the United States and Northern Europe. His early work had been featured in several collective shows at Facultad de Bellas Artes of Madrid (Painting and Audiovisual Media), where he graduated in 1994. He has worked with Madrid’s Galería Gaudí on shows for international festivals. The Spanish Consulate of San Francisco invited him to represent Spain with his paintings at the emblematic Palace of Fine Arts. He has shown his art at the prestigious 111 Minna Gallery and Roll Up Gallery. He has participated in many SF ARTSPAN Open Studios at Art Explosion Gallery and other venues such as The Fort Mason Center.

“In my work I enjoy expressing spontaneity and randomness with line and color, this gives the paintings a type of freedom and ease that contrasts the deeper voices of the subject matter, the story behind. So at the end, my art is about life itself, a struggle between the yin and yang, the laughter and the seriousness of being alive.”

He has curated art group shows in his own studio gallery: ARTS ON 9TH, and has gathered a large roster of international artists through the years. In 2011 he curated “120 Anniversary Art Show” with 20 artists using different media, which was a big success with the public and in sales. He helped co-create RESIDENCES, a collaborative art group of four artists from his homeland. These four artists (Paco de la Torre, Francisco Uceda, Manu Muñoz & Jesus Zamarron) are maintaining an international virtual dialogue, and are planning to show their art internationally.

He has recently had two art shows in Madrid at Centro Cultural Eduardo Urculo and White Lab Gallery, and most recently in summer 2019, he exhibited a solo show in Galeria Codice, Madrid.

He is an artist and an art educator, with over fifteen years experience teaching art. He has worked for SF ARTS ED, and Holy Name School and Mission Dolores Academy, in San Francisco. Recently he graduated with a MA in Art Education from The Academy of Art University, and holds a BFA from Complutense University in Madrid, and a Pedagogical Adaptation Certificate (CAP) from University of Almeria, Spain.
