Born in San Rafael del Maestrazgo (1944), Valencia. In the early seventies Mateo Vilagrasa travels for the first time outside Spain and travels to Paris and Germany, where he connects with the German expressionism of Pechstein, Nolde, Beckmann and the abstract expressionism of Pollock. A year later he enters the Sant Jordi School of Fine Arts in Barcelona.

After abandoning his studies, Vilagrasa established his main residence in Frankfurt where he stayed for a few years and studied engraving, lithography and photography. In 1976 Vilagrasa returns to Spain and two years later settles in Barcelona where he will develop new forms.
In 2018 the artist passed away at the age of 74 in La Cardosa, Spain. 

In addition to being a member of the Professional Association of Visual Artists and co-founder of the Frankfurt Art Collective, The Mateo Vilagrasa Foundation (FMV) was created in 2005 to accommodate a physical and institutional space in which to preserve and disseminate the artist’s work.
