Spain, 1974


With a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Seville, Miki Leal lives and works between Madrid and Seville. With a rich and complex iconography – in which references to literature, music and cinema are a constant – his combination leads us to submerge ourselves in our own memories, in our deepest and, perhaps because they are so deep, unconscious experiences. His is an ironic and distanced gaze, which takes advantage of certain stimuli to construct a poetics close to personal paradise.

His paintings are characterised by the use of paper as the only support and the use of watercolour.
