Artist Statement
These paintings seek to find a new world. I want to create a place that is filled with imagination but that is also tied to our everyday world. The goal is to reflect upon our human condition by observing our psyche and illustrating it. I see our lives from a universal perspective. Animals and people interact freely and often interchange roles. We all interact at the same level despite age, class, or species.

Manuel Miranda was born in Mexico City on February 18, 1935. He is a self-taught artist who has been painting and drawing since 1975. His formal education took place at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, UNAM) in Mexico City. He studied Music at the National School of Music briefly before deciding to major in Spanish Literature at the School of Literature and Philosophy (Facultad de Filosofía y Letras) in 1967. Miranda's former career as an art illustrator in Mexico greatly influences his painting technique on canvas. Years spent having to draw quickly to meet publication deadlines, is evident with the spontaneous and expressive lines, color and scribble he uses in his acrylic paintings.
