Alfredo Navarro was born on the eastern coast of Spain in the city of Alcoy (Alicante) in 1965. Initially inspired by his father, Navarro attended the art school of Escuela Municipal de Bellas Artes at a young age. He continued his education in Valencia where he received a degree in economics at the Valencia University as well as an art degree from Circulo de Bellas Artes. He then returned to Alcoy to paint and apprentice under the painter/teacher Selles. Also a painter, Navarro's father taught his son the techniques of oil painting. Navarro's younger brother accepted their father's art training, too. At age 19, Navarro began painting professionally and in 1986 received first place in an art exhibition sponsored by the Government Delegate of Galicia in Galicia, Spain. Navarro considers his technique somewhere between Realism and Hyperrealism. His studies provided an admiration for the artists Velazquez, Picasso and Greco.
