At the age of eighteen he began his formal training in art and studied under the Spanish artist and teacher Mila Gomez in Alcoy from 1973-76. Javier Mulio began painting professionally after he completed his schooling in 1978. Since this time he has regularly exhibited at galleries in Spain, France, the United Kingdom and the USA to critical acclaim.
Javier Mulio has an almost hyper-realistic style of painting. Simple still life compositions of glass, fruit and liquid with exquisite lighting in uncomplicated surroundings. His paintings reflect a timeless serenity and are always carefully balanced in colour, shape and texture. He has dedicated his life to painting still-life using the techniques of the Dutch masters but with a more contemporary use of colour and elements.
Javier’s style has met with great success, including international exhibitions at the Galeria Sanchez, Granada, Spain in 1982; Galeria Aquado, Logrono, Spain in 1995 and Galeria Soria, Chateauroux, France in 1996. In 1997 his work became available in the United States, where he has enjoyed further recognition at national art shows including the New York Artexpo, International Atlanta Art Buyers Caravan and numerous One Man Shows across the United States.
