Miguel ángel madrigal
b. Mexico City, 1974.
Miguel Ángel Madrigal has experimented extensively with objects and materials that he finds in everyday life, creating alternative realities. His work questions the traditional functions, conceptions and paradigms. He transforms materials, allowing them to evolve not only as a work of art, but also as a new different device. His work defies gravity, sometimes pushing its physical limits and others using traditional Trompe-l'œil (French for "deceive the eye").
Madrigal studied Architecture and Fine Arts at UNAM in Cuernavaca. He also studied alongside artist Kyoto Ota Okusawa. He has showcased his works in Mexico, Spain, Indonesia, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Germany, Dominican Republic and USA. He has also had residencies in prestigious institutions like Banff Center in Canada and in Bilbao Arte Fundazioa in Spain. He had FONCA grant.
