This intellectual artist is very well-known for his great ability to elaborately connect human melodrama and material paraphernalia into a melting pot where words and images are possible to co-exist in harmony, showing that everyone and everything are part of the same molecular whole, affecting each other through catharsis and metamorphosis.

Miguel is daring and sincere in how he sees human vulnerability and dilemma. He is precise in how he dissects and deconstructs images through the Magical Realism style, blending it with satirical words and metaphysical reasoning, always bringing the sacred and the profane face to face.

In his own words: "my images are imitations, without autonomous signification, of which signified must be sought in an indispensable work of translation."

Miguel Gontijo is becoming very well-known worldwide for his elaborate exhibitions, highly praised by the most respected art critics.
