Jesus Carlos Villalonga is a passionate man with solid beliefs and strong ideals. He is analytical and critical of the evolution of mankind, but is always willing to embrace the positive in anything or anyone. His paintings and drawings overflow with symbolism and meaning, and are devoid of any gratuitous elements. Everything matters to him; it is all relative.

As a child growing up in Catalina, Spain, he lived in a large house where his father owned an extensive art collection. His imagination was always in full gear. He always loved to draw, but especially loved when his work was criticized; he favored the pieces that his teachers did not. Once, he won an art competition at his school, but had entered one of his brother's pieces; he had given of his own drawings to some less-talented friends, who also won prizes. Obviously a well-humored boy, who later became a well-humored man; with a twist of cynicism. As he grew up, he realized that he was an artist. He wanted to paint "not what one sees, but what one wants to see". He studied at the Barcelona School of Fine Arts where he learned the techniques he used and modified throughout his career.

In 1954, he relocated to Montreal where his first business venture was selling his paintings door-to-door. The following year, he was supposed to hold his first Canadian solo exhibition at the University of Montreal, but it was shut down hours before opening. He was never given an explanation. His actual first Canadian solo show took place at the Dominion Gallery, who carried the artist's work until it's closing.

In a twist of irony, in 1971, the University of Montreal commissioned Villalonga to paint a mural at the entrance of the Faculty of Law. Since then, he has painted murals and frescoes all around Canada and in Spain, and has exhibited his work in several galleries internationally.
