Ventura Gómez Rodríguez



Ventura was born in Mairena del Alcor, Seville, Spain on November 12, 1973. He received his general education in his home town at Isabel Esquivel (The Castle) and his high school education at Instituto de Bachillerato los Alcores.

Ever since he was a young child he has felt a vocation for manual arts and with a special predilection for religious sculpture (Imagineria), due to his upbringing in the Brotherhood of the Vera-Cruz (True Cross) of Mairena del Alcor. For that reason from early on he’s felt the desire to create statues and icons out of clay.

After high school Ventura began to work as a carpenter and an artistic ironsmith. While working as an ironsmith, he created two archangels for the May Cross float for his Brotherhood in 1993. It was this date that he met the man who would be his mentor, Don Luis Alvarez Duarte. In 1993 he began his apprenticeship and therefore decided to dedicate himself to sculpture. It was also at this time that he began working on his first paid works of art.

Ventura has participated in various sculpture expositions organized in his hometown, Mairena del Alcor, in Espartinas, Olivares, Jaén, and Vienna, Austria.

Along with his many projects at hand, Ventura is currently studying Art History at the University of Seville.
