Born in Gijón in 1934.  From an early age displayed a vocation and a capacity for painting but although he found himself studying Law, he nevertheless found time to study drawing and painting at the School of Arts and Crafts of San Salvador where he had as teachers such gifted painters as BORBOLLA and TAMAYO.

After finishing Law and despite the promising prospects of a cosy life in the world of Banking, he decided to travel to London where his works were exhibited at the Victoria Embankment and at the Leighton House Art Gallery.  From there his artistic restlessness took him to France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece and Egypt.

In 1962 he came back to Spain to have his first exhibition in the Ateneo Jovellanos, Gijón.  Daniel Arbesú wrote of the young Roces: “to travel from Gijón to the Valley of the Egyptian Kings in search of inspiration is certainly something out of the ordinary."

He returned to England an exhibit at the West Malvern Vicarage.  He designs and executes the set for “El Burlador de Sevilla” performed at Cumberland Hall.  In the meantime, while preparing a doctorate in Maritime Law he does a Master in Arts at University College London.

The biography of Carlos Roces, written by D. Patricio Adúriz, figures in the “Gran Enciclopedia Asturiana” and in the “Diccionario de pintores españoles del siglo XX."  His work hangs in museums and private collections in the Argentine, Ceylon, Colombia, Egypt, U.S.A., England, Mexico, Paquistan, Venezuela, etc., as well, of course, in Spain.

Twenty years ago, in 1978, LINARES-RIVAS wrote these lines in a Leon newspaper.

“Since 1948, when very young, to the present day, Carlos Roces has had an intense curriculum vitae, so many steps on the path of progress that it is difficult to pause for a moment: collective exhibitions, individual exhibitions, awards, prizes, academic titles, in short, many milestone in a still short lifetime."


In 1996, he was elected a member of the Advisory Board of the Barjola Museum and exhibited works in the Bellas Artes Gallery in Gijón.  He was the sole Asturian representative at ARTESANTANDER for the Toisón Gallery.  He held an exhibition of his work in the gallery Sala de Arte BBV, Oviedo, being introduced by J.A. Samaniego, and in Santa Engracia Gallery in Madrid where Mauro Muñiz did the honours.
 

Following up on exhibitions in Gijón, Oviedo and Bilbao, he now exhibits in Manila forming part of the 1998 Centenary Program in the Philippines

Carlos Roces's Guestbook

El Minero...
Carlos...me ha impactado la imagen del minero, por el contraste de esa luz que él tiene a pesar de esa oscuridad que parece engullírselo...por cómo has trabajado la materia que tan bién da la sensación de la piedra y de sus diversas texturas y también por el color que hay en esa oscuridad que no es negra...cómo toda tu obra ésta también tiene el mé.../...
