Miguel Barros

Miguel Barros was born in Portugal, and grew up in his home country as well as Brazil. He studied at IADE Creative University in Portugal earning a degree in Interior Architecture and Design.  In 2008, Barros moved to Angola, Africa, where he spent 6 years living and working, then later moved to Calgary, his current place of residence.

Barros’ travels throughout Asia and Africa, as well as his current home in Alberta, inform his works. He explores the relationship between tension and harmony in his work, hoping to expose its innermost spirit. Barros uses traditional techniques in original applications to invite the viewer to meditate on the mysteries of philosophy and art.
