Christophe Miralles

Christophe Miralles is a Franco-Spanish artist who lives and works between Burgundy and Casablanca. He has received many prizes such as the Azart Prize in 2005. His work has been the subject of numerous monographic exhibitions in France and abroad, and has been integrated into many collections.

From his roots in Morocco, one can note the influences that resonate between the two shores of the Mediterranean, which never cease to look at one another. As an inspiration, Spanish painting from the Golden Age has undoubtedly sealed his relationship with light.

Human figures suspended in the void haunt his canvases, inducing feelings of worry mixed with a certain nostalgia. The combination of simplified forms and subtle nuances in colors allows him to give a timeless aspect to his paintings, where the material is the main subject.

Miralles creates oil and lacquer paintings on paper and canvas. He brought together a series of paintings for an exhibition at Loo & Lou gallery entitled Territoire Unique in April 2018. His work is based on themes of humanity, travel, and tolerance. Colors burn through his canvases, engorging them in flames, with the ashes slowly falling on his large, black papers. He is a painter anchored in contemporary society, a territory that he hopes is unique for each person.
