about the artist's works
Miguel Piñeiro is a hyperrealist artist rooted in pop aesthetics with a nonconformist and experimental spirit that leads him to apply his outstanding technical skill to painting with results that simulate photographs, but also to graphic work, sculptural genre and installation. His works are visually surprising and establish a very direct and emotional dialogue with the viewer, as they show everyday objects that are present in our daily lives. In his paintings of vibrant colourful Piñeiro plays with our vision through illusions where he revisits the concept of still life; breathes a contemporary pop air into this classic genre with the presence of everyday objects on many occasions of famous brands, in such a way that it establishes a link with the world of advertising and design, which fascinate him so much.
