Artist/Painter
Director of the Barcelona Academy of Art

Jordi Diaz Alamà, born 1986 in Granollers, is a Fine Arts graduate from the University of Barcelona. Trained by contemporary masters like Guillermo Muñoz Vera, Odd Nerdrum, and Antonio López, his art blends classical realism with contemporary aesthetics. He founded the Barcelona Academy of Art in 2013. Through his teaching, he endeavours to promote the classical methods of art as a valuable tool that aids in the interpretation and representation of modern-day themes. Alamà’s works are featured in the permanent collections of the MEAM and Can Framis Museum in Barcelona, as well as private collections in Europe, the United States, and Australia.
