From the family tradition he has inherited many of the knowledge and techniques on pictorial materials and, at the same time, a great sensitivity. He studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Barcelona, where he specialized in painting. In 1991 he received a scholarship from the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
In addition to pictorial art, his professional life encompasses a long list of works and experiences that move between graphic design, chromaticism, scenography, restoration, decoration and photography workshops. Tradition and craft become a background along with experimentation, innovation and philosophy for painting in its contemporary art aspect. Since 1989, Jaume Mestres has exhibited in different halls and galleries. His work can be found in different private collections, mostly in Europe.
