Colomer was raised with the rich artistic heritage of
his family and the inspirational landscape tradition
surrounding him. Born in San Feliu De Pallerols,
near Olol in the Catalonia region of Spain, in 1965,
Colomer was intimately shaped by the pastoral
countryside of deep forests and rolling hills that lent
its name to the Olotina Landscape School, founded by
painter Joaquim Vayreda over 100 years ago.
Colomer learned to paint at a young age, alongside his
two brothers and under the tutelage of his father, also
Colomer painted steadily, mastering complicated techniques quickly, interrupting his rapid progress only to attend the university in Barcelona. After receiving his degree in philosophy and liberal arts, Colomer, based in Madrid, traveled extensively to study masterpieces in the world's greatest museums. While he ardently studied the styles of master painters, he continued painting and intensively developed his own. In 1990 he married and continued his studies in Madrid at the Municipal School of Beaux Arts. Soon after, he started exhibiting in Barcelona and Madrid. In 1993 Colomer moved to the countryside where he currently resides with his wife and two children.
