Joan Punyet Miró

Artist

With his work based on recycling discarded objects, natural elements that he finds during his long walks in the mountains or beaches of Mallorca, along with old books or forgotten picture frames, Punyet Miró creates a universe of his own. Painting, drawing, collage, monotypes, sculpture, mobiles, “stabiles” and ceramics are his chosen mediums to express his moving and poetic message: a desire for the human being to reconnect with nature.

Poet

During the five years he lived in Paris, he wrote a book of poems La roue de secours (Jean-Paul Louis, Tusson 2000) illustrated by the Polish artist Kassia Knap. With sensitivity he narrates the delicate and fragile condition of human language, and its relation to the intuitive intelligence that inhabits the poet’s dream world.

Writer

He published the novel “El susurro de la intuición” (Ferrán Cano ed., Palma 2001) illustrated by the Mallorcan artist Pedro Oliver. The story reflects on the fineness of the human soul, its hunches that cling to the desire and ability to love.

Art historian

His long career, after graduating from New York University in 1995, revolves around the projection and promotion of the work of his grandfather Joan Miró. He has curated numerous exhibitions, in addition to writing texts for catalogs, conferences, etc. He has published several books such as Al voltant de Miró (Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona 2014) or Miró & Music (Alrevés, Barcelona 2017).
