Born in Felanitx, Majorca in Spain, Miquel Barceló displayed his first Solo Exposition in the Palma Museum, the art exposition was heavily influenced by art Brut, a style that Barceló had discovered in 1970 in Paris.
In the 80’s he traveled extensively throughout Europe, United States, and West Africa, and would eventually set up studios in both Paris and Segou.
His artwork represents an eternal exploration for new Forms of expression, in which he experiments with different techniques, materials, textures, lights, perspectives and Colors, but always in correspondence with the work of Pablo Picasso.
Furthermore, in 2003, The Louvre Museum in Paris featured Barcelo’s watercolor paintings of Dante’s Divine Comedy, converting him into the youngest artist ever shown in the museum.
