Miquel Barceló, contemporary treasure of Mallorca

Mallorca is land of spectacular natural landscapes, delicious cuisine and beautiful traditions. But the island hides more treasures ..., its people. Do you know who the most quoted living Spanish painter is? The Mallorcan artist Miquel Barceló. He was born in 1957 in Felanitx, a small town east of Mallorca. The fame came after his participation in the Biennial of Sao Paulo and, since then, has only just fly.

Today he's one of the most internationally renowned artists. He has exhibited around the world and among all his works, which has generated more controversy, is the dome of the Human Rights Room at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva. In Mallorca, we can admire the Chapel of Sant Pere and his ceramic mural of 300 square meters with the issue of the Multiplication of the Loaves of Bread and Fish. He also has works on display at the Museu d'Art Modern i Contemporani Es Baluard, as Fifteen Holes, with an impressive moonscape in relief.
