Miquel Barceló (b. 1957) is a contemporary Spanish artist known for his Neo-Expressionist work, including large-scale gestural paintings, ceramic installations, and bronze sculptures. Born in Felanitx, Spain, he studied art in Palma de Mallorca and then in Barcelona. He later joined a group of Conceptual artists involved with ecological issues, which impacted his interest in depicting natural motifs in his work. In the 1980s, he incorporated organic materials, soil, and stone into his paintings. His work explores decomposition, light, and the natural landscape and experiments with alternative materials, including bleach. He has had several solo exhibitions, including shows at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston and the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume in Paris.
