Why Did You Become An Artist Desde niño, quise ser pintor, pero mis padres no querían. Me fui de España para serlo. En Inglaterra comencé a vivir para el Arte.
Your Personal Biography Born in Gijón in 1934. From an early age displayed a vocation and a capacity for painting but although he found himself studying Law, he nevertheless found time to study drawing and painting at the School of Arts and Crafts of San Salvador where he had as teachers such gifted painters as BORBOLLA and TAMAYO.
After finishing Law and despite the promising prospects of a cosy life in the world of Banking, he decided to travel to London where his works were exhibited at the Victoria Embankment and at the Leighton House Art Gallery. From there his artistic restlessness took him to France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece and Egypt.
In 1962 he came back to Spain to have his first exhibition in the Ateneo Jovellanos, Gijón. Daniel Arbesú wrote of the young Roces: 'to travel from Gijón to the Valley of the Egyptian Kings in search of inspiration is certainly something out of the ordinary.'

Twenty years ago, in 1978, LINARES-RIVAS wrote these lines in a Leon newspaper.
'Since 1948, when very young, to the present day, Carlos Roces has had an intense curriculum vitae, so many steps on the path of progress that it is difficult to pause for a moment: collective exhibitions, individual exhibitions, awards, prizes, academic titles, in short, many milestone in a still short lifetime.'
In 1996, he was elected a member of the Advisory Board of the Barjola Museum and exhibited works in the Bellas Artes Gallery in Gijón.

In the Brush, Ines Hurlé speaks of '... the grayish semipenumbra that invades the later part of the pictures, giving them to the trees of the first term all the protagonism that provide the small points to them of light on the leaves, bathed by the sun '.
