Nono García, as the artist Antonio García Sánchez is known, was born in the town of Mula, in Murcia. He developed his artistic and aesthetic sense from an early age, and around the turn of the century he devoted himself entirely to painting as a way of life, fully embracing brushes, light effects and colour. Since then he has had several studios in historical and picturesque parts of Mula. With the passing years he has become a consummate painter of still lifes and urban landscapes, as well as nature, using watercolour and mixed media on a range of supports. In south-eastern Spain he is a leading figure among contemporary artists, associated with the New Neo-Figurative movement. One of his outstanding qualities is his friendship and constant support for many painters.
After trying his hand at various occupations, he began studying at the School of Applied Arts and Crafts in Murcia, now the Murcia School of Art. He took lessons and courses with the hyperrealist Antonio López (2005), the master of light Pedro Cano (2004 and 2010) and the versatile Cristóbal Gabarrón (2006–07), the latter two being the artists who had a decisive impact on his own artistic orientation and who introduced him to direct observation of nature and landscape, together with the great Ramón Gaya, whose influence is present in his work.
