1963, Barcelona, Spain
Miquel Aparici's sculptures are surprising assemblages made from old objects that had other uses in the past, and which the artist recovers and uses in a creative and ingenious way. The result is an original collection of unusual animals that test our imagination and invite us to discover the elements that make up each piece, in a fun game of observation requiring the complicity of the viewer.
His work is characterized by simplicity, since most of his pieces bring together few elements, resulting in very elegant compositions with simple lines, which together with his creativity, endow his pieces with great expressive power.
In addition to exhibiting in various galleries in Barcelona, Miquel Aparici's work has travelled to several other cities around the world (New York, Copenhagen, Fribourg, Madrid, Vienna and Milan), and has been shown at international fairs, such as ART Bodensee (Austria), ART Copenhaguen (Denmark) and Art Fair de Cologne (Germany), as well as institutions, such as the Museum of Natural Sciences in Barcelona and the Sagrada Familia Temple, which in 2005 brought together a curious selection of various pieces by the artist inspired by the animals sculpted by Gaudí. Other spaces that have recently hosted an exhibition of his work are the Cristina Enea Foundation (San Sebastian) and the Miramar Cultural Centre in Sitges (Barcelona).
