Born in 1957, Miquel Barceló is a Spanish abstract artist, known for his conceptual paintings and sculpture. Experimenting across a wide range of media, Barceló celebrates light and the natural landscape. Barceló belonged to the Neo-Expressionist and avant-garde movement of the early 1980s. He credits Italian painter and sculptor, Lucio Fontana, as having a major impact on his work. These influences can be seen in his rough handling of materials.
Barcelo’s travels have also shaped his work. His paintings feature materials such as African ceramics and cast iron, sourced from his travels across Europe, America and West Africa. During this time, he based himself Paris, France, where he continues to work today.
