“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Joan Miro (Spanish Artist)
Joan Miró i Ferrà was an ethnic Catalan painter, sculptor and ceramicist born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.
Earning international acclaim, his work has been interpreted as Surrealism, a sandbox for the subconscious mind, a re-creation of the childlike, and a manifestation of Catalan pride. In numerous interviews dating from the 1930s onwards, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeoise society, and famously declared an "assassination of painting" in favor of upsetting the visual elements of established painting.
