Georges Ward, born in Zaragoza (Spain) in 1971 to a Lebanese father and Spanish mother, started studying the arts of drawing and painting at a very early age. His inspiration derives primarily from mythology and nature, where entomology plays an important role. From a young age he is very influenced by the Near East art, due to his many trips to these lands, especially the one-year stay in Syria. The smells of spices, damasks… everything plays an important role in his laborious painting. In 1985 he was awarded first prize in a contest held by the Diputación General de Aragón (The Aragonese Regional Government), and, during that same year, began to gain regular exposure at art exhibitions. After completing his studies at the Escuela de Artes de Zaragoza, his enthusiasm for investigation led him to become immersed in numerous pictorical movements, such as Realism or Surrealism.
