Born in Ceuta, Spain, Ginés Serrán-Pagán has lived most of his life in New York where he graduated from New York University. He has had 250 exhibitions in over 20 countries (128 solo exhibitions). He is considered as one of the most renowned international contemporary artists in the world and the Western artist who probably has had more exhibitions in Asia.

His paintings and sculptures are collected by major museums including the Guggenheim Museum of New York and by numerous institutions and private collectors. He is one of the few artists today creating monumental bronze sculptures. His eclecticism, from abstraction and expressionism to a new Renaissance realism, is unique. His bronzes “Calypso,” “Venus of Ashland,” “The Columns of Hercules,” and “The Union of the World” are the largest sculptures of classical mythology in the world today. Recently, his monument “The Emperador,” 23 meters high, a composition of nine sculptures placed in Manila, is considered the largest monument in the Philippines.

He is the recipient of important international awards and acknowledgments. Amongst them, he has received the Medal of the City of Kanazawa, Japan; the Medal of Ceuta, Spain; the Gold Keys of the City of Miami; the Fuji International Art Award, Tokyo; and recently, in 2018, at the International Art Fair, Miami, the “Lorenzo De Medici Medal of the Arts,” for his artistic and humanitarian contributions to the world. On May 11, 2019, he is honored in Rome “Ambassador of the Arts.”
