Masal was born in Alicante in1974. Both his father and older sister were professional artists, and from the age of 14 he began to spend time in the family studio where they worked. This began his artistic training which continued more formally at the Academy of Fine Arts in Alcoi and then in Valencia where he focused his talents on landscape painting.
Masal’s great sensitivity to the landscape and delicacy of touch surfaced early on in his artwork. As time passed and he studied great artists from the past and present and time painting the beautiful landscape around him, he began to develop and impressionistic style.
In the 1990s, Masal suffered from a long illness which interrupted his artistic life, but since his recovery his passion is greater than ever. His landscapes have gained a newly expressive vibrancy which has won him acclaim in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
