About This Book

This exhibition catalog is a long-awaited monograph on one of the most important contemporary artists working today. Barcelo's artistic journey is explored through the themes that have marked his work over a period of more than twenty years. His subjects are first and foremost intentionally autobiographical: Barcelo depicts himself as he paints, alluding to the role of the demiurge incarnated as artist. Different artistic techniques enable him to represent the reality of the world, essentially exposing the constant flux of life and death. The book is divided into two parts: six introductory essays that describe Miquel Barcelo chronology in terms of his stylistic and technical development, and a catalog of about 60 works.
