BIOGRAPHY

 Miguel Carbajal

Born 1986 in Zurich, Switzerland.

Cinema inspired me to pursue photography as a means of artistic expression. I learned the trade at the Peruvian Institute of Art and Design in Lima, Peru. After years of pictorial exploration through the camera, I decide to change the medium.

Now I find myself in front of drawing and oil painting mostly. My works bring together stories, fables, psychology, poetry, philosophy and mysticism.

What has become more important lately is the use of color as an emotional messenger, without ceasing to be figurative. The starting point to carry out the works is then usually more linked to an intuition or a feeling. The images thus become arcana that I have to decipher, sometimes after a long time.
