Benito Mayor Vallejo studied art and graphic design at the School of Arts and Crafts, Saragoza, the Emily Carr Institute Vancouver, Canada and the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze. His work has been seen in solo and group exhibitions in Canada, Italy and Spain.

The portrait is of Andrei, Roland and Jeremy, fellow-artists whom Mayor Vallejo met during an art exchange programme at the Emily Carr Institute. The location is their studio in Vancouver and while the central figure turns to engage the viewer in the group conversation, the repeated dog and bird suggest a non-linear narrative.
