Angel Giraldez was born in Vigo, Spain, in 1983; his passion for painting miniatures began in 2001 in a surprising way: he was watching TV and saw an ad for a painting magazine and it caught his attention. He bought the first issue and in just a few years he turned his hobby into a profession.
In 2003 he became part of a small company called Corvus Belli, today one of the most powerful companies in the sector. Angel has developed the painting style of the company and its game Infinity. His attitude to further improve and see more horizons resulted in his creation of a painting service called Studio Giraldez in 2007, where he has worked for more than 30 international companies.
Angel is one of the best commercial painters and he wants to share his years of experience with everyone. In 2015, Angel published his first book (by self-financing): "Painting Miniatures from A to Z Angel Giraldez Masterclass Volume 1", which has sold 15,500 copies in a few months, breaking sales records, making history. A year and a half later he published his second book ("Angel Giraldez Masterclass Volume 2") with 12,000 copies sold.
In 2017 Angel created Luxumbra in collaboration with his partner David and they launched their first Kickstarter project: Infinity Collectors.
Besides that, Angel is sponsored and works to make paintings sets, products testing, bases, etc. with Acrylicos Vallejo, Artis Opus, Harder & Steenbeck, Iwata, Customeeple, Warsenal, etc.
The name of Angel Giraldez has become a brand and nowadays he has decided to be a freelance artist. Now he works with several companies around the world with his new project: the "AG Team".
