About My Work
Miguel Barros’ art sways between harmony and conflict. He avoids the easy mirroring of the reality, but his modern spirit makes an “interior world” come to surface, showing its true colours and an insightful look upon life and the surrounding entities.
Each year, Miguel profits from his full dedication to art, refining his technique as well bringing more of himself as each new work is presented. His work has grown through the years in artistic sensibility and has become a reference in several places around the World.
Miguel’s paintings clearly reflect a fundamental connection with art. His work seems to be his soul handwriting a letter to the observer of his art, in a message full of emotions and intention that materialize into colours and apparently shapeless forms. If each one of us keeps an open spirit to Miguel’s work, it’s almost impossible to avoid a wave of warmth and pleasure coming from his paintings.
His work confirms Miguel’s talented skills, especially the way he uses old techniques in an original way to convey his vision of the world. Miguel’s thoughts, ideas, and concepts are full of passion and energy and are presented in a refreshing and clear way, though there is also a clear invitation to meditate on the mysteries of art and philosophy.
Miguel Barros’ works are in several public and private collections in several countries around the world, including Portugal, Angola, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Norway, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Brazil, Canada, United States, India, Lebanon and Mozambique, Australia, Sweden, and South Africa.
