Born in Barcelona, his passion for painting made him give up a medical career. He studied painting at the Escuela de la Llotja in Barcelona, went then to Paris to complete his formation, and had also an artistic stage in Italy.

Known as a painter of seascapes and landscapes, made with loose brushwork and gentle tones. His disposition led him to travel halfway around the world, exhibiting his work in many cities in Europe and America also place it in the fashion of their time to see exotic places. He was in this sense a cosmopolitan artist and adventurer while anchored to certain nineteenth-century tastes (http://www.paintingall.com/Spanish-Impressionist-Artist-Eliseu-Meifren-i-Roig-Oil-Paintings/) .
