Born on 21 June 1941 in Cordoba, Cristóbal Moreno Toledo has suffered from muscular dystrophy since birth. He began painting and writing with his mouth in elementary school. With great commitment he continued to self educate him in art. Later on Cristóbal Moreno Toledo took a correspondence course at the Parramon Institute in Barcelona. His style of paintings is impressionistic with wide brush strokes, open and generous, with lots of paints and warm colours in forms that move towards expressionism. He chooses his subjects, ranging from landscapes and portraits to nudes, instinctively; sketching, oil painting, engraving and watercolour are the techniques he prefers. Cristóbal Moreno Toledo is also a writer.
