Miguel Peidro was born in 1950 in Alcoy, Alicante, Spain. He received artistic training at a private studio alongside well-known Spanish painters such as Vincente Moya, Alex Alemany, and Juan Ferri. Being in the presence of such talent, Miguel was inspired to learn as much as possible and did so within a 5 year period.
Miguel Peidro holds a special sensibility and awareness towards nature that clearly resonates through his works. His choice of the panoramic format accentuates the landscape and invites the viewer to partake in the artist’s vision.
Upon viewing Peidro’s landscapes, one cannot help but get caught in the quiet and meditative portrayals of his native Spanish land. Light and reflection are especially important in Peidro’s landscapes. Light reflecting on water and surfaces is a mysterious phenomenon to Peidro, which he explores with intrigue and vigor. The water not only reflects the light, but the vitality of the natural world that Peidro admires.
Peidro’s attraction to the force of nature is indisputable. His admiration for both painting and nature translates eloquently onto canvas through use of delicate brushstrokes and thick layers of paint. In the artist’s own words, “My passion for both painting and nature are mixed within myself. This is the reason I paint landscapes. I find much inspiration in taking nature walks during my travels throughout Europe. I’m not interested in current art trends, I just paint what I like.”
Miguel Peidro’s work has been extensively exhibited and collected throughout Spain, Japan, the United States, Portugal, and China, including an exposition at the Time Arts Museum in Beijing.
