De Sousa Miguel
  • France
  • Painter / Sculptor

To me, art influences life as much as it draws from it. I seek to invite the viewer to dream and to give him or her a feeling of well-being.
Miguel de Sousa comes from a modest background and always knew that there were two possible paths for him: the factory or painting. As a child he has deeply changed after discovering Dali and found a release in painting that he did not find in school. His family did not support his artistic aspirations and so he decided to go his own way. He underwent training as a decorator and was able to meet his needs with his talent. As a creator of universes, he painted frescoes for his private clients as well as backgrounds for film sets and theatre. In addition, he continued to build his own world and was able to devote himself to his personal work in 2013.
Miguel was fascinated by Chagall's dream world, by Dali's oneiric universe and by the bodies represented in Bacon and Schiele's paintings and began to create colourful and poetic works, populated by eccentric characters. He hates routine and works when the desire seizes him, allowing himself to take detours towards sculpture when he is no longer satisfied with his visual pictorial representations, going from colour to monochrome when he is afraid of getting stuck. He is self-taught and masters many techniques, which he uses and mixes according to his inspiration. His encounter with oil paints, watercolours, collage and pencil give his works a spark of life and a fascinating feeling of movement.
