Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893- 1983) was a versatile artist that was constantly experimenting through his pieces of work (that included paintings, sculptures and ceramics). Miró had a unique style of Surrealism and his paitings consisted of geometric shapes, pictorial signs and lots of abstract and semi-abstract objects.The colours that are predominant in his artwork are red, yellow, blue, green and black. He wanted to show our dreams and unconscious thoughts in Art, creating unexpected and irrational images. Miró did not like conventional painting methods, he wanted to make changes to the established ways of creating and thinking and he was looking for a way to innovate and move away from conventional life.
“In a picture, it should be possible to discover new things every time you see it. But you can look at a picture for a week together and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life”.
