Spanish, b. 1979
Miguel Caravaca represents realities that arise from his reflections thanks to the observation and study of the human body, and especially, focusing on the face and its expressions as a mirror of the human soul. His final objective is to share with the public this projection of his inner world and invite the viewer to start his/her own reflection process using a highly studied aesthetic – where color and form are the main transmitters of this close and universal language.
The artist’s aesthetic references are abstract geometry, especially cubism – which inspires the use of the line, and the importance of pigment and composition – but also urban art, which makes him feel comfortable with the large formats and the materials he uses such as acrylic and markers of enamel.
In Caravaca’s work it is evident that chromaticism and line predominate over the narrative of the piece: these are the devices with which he tries to create an impact on the viewer, also contribute elements of his daily life, using a universal language. The artist’s intention is to provoke an aesthetic experience from the sensations and the delight of beauty.
