Samuel Armas

Samuel Fernández Armas, known in the field under the name of Samuel Armas, was born on the 15th of July, 1992 in Avilés (Asturias). After graduating Secondary School and A-levels through the branch of arts, he decided to start his undergraduate studies in Aranjuez, Madrid.

He carried out his first collective exhibition out of Asturias in the Art Gallery ‘Luis Alberto Romero de Soria’. After he came back to his home town, he took painting lessons with the artist Amado González Hevia, commonly known as «Favila».

Samuel Armas balanced his job as an artist while studying his degree in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage, which he studied in the Escuela Superior de Arte del Principado de Asturias (ESAPA). He entered shortly after in the artistic panorama; this was done through his participation on different painting competitions and exhibiting his artworks in several art galleries.

The possibility of having his artworks publicised in different national and international art-fairs -like ARTMADRID, ROOM ART FAIR #4 or DONOSTIARTEAN-, was a chance given to the artist by the prestigious gallery ‘Cervantes6’. In May, 2015 he had his first solo exhibition in the Gallery ‘Cervantes6’: “Amalgama Interior” (‘Inner Amalgam’).
