Happy Birthday Joan Miró!

Happy Birthday Joan Miró!

Joan Miró Ferra was born on April 20, 1893 in Barcelona, Spain. Remembered as one of the greatest Surrealists, Miro’s works draw on inspiration from landscapes of Majorca, Mont-roig, and Paris. Colorful and almost child-like are many of his works, where one can see figures structured and restructured in patterns. Dots, drips, lines, and gestures create an abstraction of intricate forms.

He is known for irregular and asymmetrical arrangements that convey the sense of discord. Many figures become alive in his art—beautifully marred by mystical creatures and striking interpretations of human hybrid faces.
