MIGUEL MACAYA | Santander, 1964

Miguel Macaya it’s an extraordinary drawer that surprises spectator because she uses a traditional technique to realize very contemporary works that do not make anybody indifferent. From his black backgrounds burst in figures nearly like sculptures or 3D images, sideways looking or profiles, a glitter or colour, like in the athletes helmets or in the bullfighters cape. These characters are exactly the heroes of his works, who stare like if they have been surprised by someone who is observing them. Miguel Macaya paints lonely men and lonely animals where he portrays its anonymity through the emphasis of the look or the strength of his profile. Another recurring topic is still life and his Caprichos, which reminds us from Goya. Precisely is his pleasure in the dark which have brought him near to Goya in all his work.
