Nuria Miró was born in Alcoy, Alicante, Spain in 1961, a region that is famous for
its artistic heritage. She studied at the School of Arts in her hometown, and later moved to the
College of Fine Arts of San Carlos in Valencia, Spain. As she pursued her artistic career in Spain,
it was clear she had an artistic vision that was emotive in nature.
She is well-known for her technicolor houses of Ibiza, a Spanish island off the Mediterranean
coast. The island is famous for its clear waters, rocky shores, and hidden coves bathed by
the sun. Ibiza has recently become a popular tourist spot for the cultured elite, including
a number of celebrities, athletes, and professionals. Though Ibiza thrives off of its expansive
tourist industry, Nuria paints a vacated cluster of homes that evoke a quietude of place
and time. The tourist spot not only offers a safe-haven of earthly delights; its Mediterranean
beauty speaks to the artist soul with its shimmering light and bright color palette.
Nuria is a painter of high quality, sensitivity, emotion, and poetry. Her works are highly
expressive in brushstrokes, reflective of pristine colors, and precise in line-work, all
coalescing to form a play of light and shadow of her condensed spaces. The compositions
of each of her works are heightened by interesting new perspectives of the architectural
landscape. The architecture in her work in a key element, for it conveys the physical
and metaphorical stability and structure of the Ibizan land. Each building is coated in
sunlight, which appears from different angles in each piece, in order to capture the natural
Mediterranean light and to express the passing of the time of day. Her combined academic
training and her intuitiveness of art present painting as effortless, with the consistency
of her masterful drawing skills, dynamic perspectives, and loose brushwork. Her technique
is deliberate and steady, as evidenced in any of her works.
