Description

Joan Miró was a painter, sculptor, engraver and ceramist. And also one of the pioneers of what was called surrealism, specifically its most "childish" and automatic.

For Joan Miró the subconscious was a huge playground, or a toy very similar to those he had in his childhood.

With very eclectic beginnings, the painter was born with the avant-garde and in his first work he showed strong influences of Fauvism, Cubism and Expressionism, all with that touch so naïve of his production.

But in Paris he discovers the power of the oneiric and decides to end conventional methods of painting. In his own words he wanted to "kill them, kill them or rape them". In 1924 he signed the Surrealist Manifesto and incorporated automatic infantile forms and calligraphic signs into his work.

His work is becoming increasingly abstract, simpler, more childish. It also reduces its palette to primary colors, to primary forms, and this is also seen in its sculptures and ceramics.

His art steals from childhood, but also from popular culture, so there is much symbolism (the bird, the stars, the female figure ...) that reflects his naive, happy and impetuous vision of the world.
