Known by his second surname or as “El Beato Ripo”, Joan García Ripollés discovered his passion for painting when, still very young and in the middle of the war, he started working in an industrial painting workshop. Since then he dedicated himself to painting at night, and later he received drawing classes at the Ribalta institute in Castellón. After his debut in a collective exhibition held in 1951 at the Castellón Savings Bank, in 1954 there was a turning point in his career, as a result of a trip to Paris in which he established contact with the artistic circles of the city. However, he could not leave industrial painting until 1958, when he joined the Drouand David gallery in Paris, one of the most prestigious in the world. He organised his first important individual exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, in 1962, and in 1967 he travelled to New York, where he exhibited and sold his entire collection to The William Haber Art Collection. That same year, the New York dealer Leon Amiel, from the Larrouse gallery, acquired all of his work, something that will be repeated on his trip to Japan. From this moment begins a brilliant international career that has carried his work all over the world. He has organised individual exhibitions not only in Spain, Paris and New York, but also in Mexico, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, various American cities, Germany and Japan. He is currently an exclusive artist for The William Haber Art in New York and the Galerie Drouand in Paris. In 2000 he was awarded the Valencian Community Prize for the Arts. Ripollés defines himself as an “immature adult” and, above all, “carefree, a bit picaresque and with some ingenuity”, words that reflect his exuberant creative spirit, his simple and outgoing character and his soul as a child. Ripollés is, today, one of the most international Spanish artists, and also one of the most complete, since he has worked brilliantly in painting, sculpture and engraving. It is represented at the IVAM, the MOMA in New York, the Museum of the University of Alicante, the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona.
