Miquel Barceló was born in Felanitx, Mallorca, in 1957. Throughout the 1980s, he travelled extensively across Europe, the United States and West Africa. His participation in Documenta 7 in Kassel, Germany, in 1982 gained him international recognition. Barceló’s creative approach has been in high demand: in 1990, he designed the set and costumes for Manuel De Falla’s opera Tréteaux de Maître Pierre at the Opéra Comique in Paris and at the 2006 Avignon Festival, he presented a performance with choreographer Joseph Nadj. In 2002/2003, Barceló lined Palma Cathedral’s Saint Peter’s Chapel with ceramic works. In 2004, Barceló’s watercolours illustrating Dante’s Divina Commedia were displayed at the Louvre in Paris, making him the youngest artist ever shown in the museum. In 2008, Barceló unveiled his expansive ceiling painting (1,300 m2) in the ellipsoidal dome of the Human Rights Council room at the United Nations Office in Geneva. In 2009, he represented Spain at the 53rd Venice Biennale. Since the mid-1980s, Barceló’s work (paintings, drawings, sculptures and ceramics) has been exhibited worldwide in renowned galleries, major museums and other cultural sites. Miquel Barceló currently lives and works in Paris and Mallorca.
