Pepe Morales was born in Córdoba in 1933. Ever since he enrolled at the Escuela de Artes y Oficios de Capuchinos de Sevilla, at the age of 12, he has not ceased his training in the world of art.

In 1952 he founded the “Joven Escuela Sevillana” and became member of the “Guadalquivir Camilla.” In 1953 he qualified as a drawing and painting teacher however he preferred to travel and paint the landscapes in the north of Spain. He then obtained
1st prize at the SEU Provincial Exhibition in Seville. In 1954 he made a solo exhibition at the Sala Municipal de Córdoba showing his landscape creations.

One year later he launches his second exhibition at the Club La Rábida in Seville. In 1957 he attended nature drawing classes at Saint Martin’s School of Art, London. This is when he started to experiment with abstracts in papier maché, jewellery stones, fabrics, etc… Some of his most notable awards are the 1st prize at the X Bienal in Marbella in 1955; the prize for painting at the Ist Bienal de Arte de la ciudad de Lucena; a Mention of Honour at the IV National Painting Competition of Cordoba and the National Painting Prize of Monte Piedad and Savings Bank of Cordoba, among many others.
