Joan Miró

Miro Signature - Joan Miró

Joan Miró was born in Spain in 1893 to a family of craftsmen. During his life, he explored colors and forms to invent a new kind of pictorial space, in which could co-exist recognizable forms together with objects that came from the artist's imagination. the juxtaposition between his fanciful, poetic fantasy and his vision of the harshness of modern life formed his mature style.

"Any accident is good enough. I let the matiere decide. Then I prepare a ground by, for example, wiping my brushes on the canvas. Letting fall some drops of turpentine on it would do just as well."

Joan Miró

Miró created a completely new visual vocabulary for art that could exist outside the objective world but that does not become complete abstraction. His Biomorphic forms were pure invention but remained within the bounds of objectivity. They become recognizable through their juxtaposition with other forms and the use of color.
