"For me a form is never something abstract; it is always a sign of something. "
The Spanish painter and sculptor Joan Miró is one of the representatives of Surrealism. His land, history, and culture left an indelible mark on the artist, permeating his work. The creator of a free and dreamlike pictorial language considered a “contemporary classic”, Miró borrows traditional features of painting - landscapes, figures, still lifes - but in a very indiviual way, which renders his work instantly recognisable. An exceptional colourist, Joan Miró takes great care in the choice of his shades and tones. His playful imagery and linear marks lend an aspect of fantasy to his abstract paintings.
