Miquel Barceló

barceloPresented as natural imagery and  organic forms, time, death and life are constant subjects in Miquel Barceló (Palma de Mallorca, 1957) whose recognized universal influence and importance increases daily and have made him one of the most important internationally acclaimed artists. To his logically predominating European cultural and artistic background, Barceló has discovered in Africa, concretely in Mali, new sources for his artistic expression: the concept of death and life in Africa, the textures, landscapes and colors…

Among the numerous awards that Barceló has received is the Spanish 2014 National Graphic Art Award. He has been the youngest artist to ever show at the Musée du Louvre and he has had  many retrospectives at such renowned institutions as Centre Pompidou, Paris, Centro Nacional de Arte Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid, Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico D.F, Museo Guggenheim, Bilbao. It goes without saying that his works figure in many important private and public collections worldwide.
