Joan Miró was a Spanish artist born in Barcelona in 1893. He is honoured and revered in his homelands for his contribution to the creative world. Miró’s artwork is said to embody Surrealism to offer a playground for the subconscious mind to wander through. It emphasizes a child like state of being that contradicts the conventions of painting. His pieces are full of bold colour and shape that are awakening to the soul.
