Miguel Peidro comes from Alcoy, Alicante, Spain, where he received artistic training at a private studio alongside well known Spanish Masters such as Vicente Moya, Alex Alemany, and Juan Ferri. He possesses an innate sensibility and awareness towards nature that clearly resonates in his work. Upon viewing Peidro’s landscapes, one cannot help but get caught up in his quiet and meditative landscapes. His choice of panoramic format welcomes the viewer to partake in his vision. Peidro says, “My passion for both painting and nature are mixed within myself. This is the reason I paint landscapes. I find much inspiration in taking nature walks during my travels throughout Europe.” His paintings are vistas for his viewers, an escape from the city life and a dwelling in which they can connect with the power of nature.
Art critic Josep Cadena says of Miguel Peidro’s works, “[In] order to begin, he must first feel the poetic tremor of the sun’s rays passing through the tree branches, giving diversity of tones to each leaf. Or it is necessity to feel the spiritual connection with the sea, thanks to the constant coming and going of the waves. Or to capture, with each step, without ceasing to walk, the light kiss of the winds that awakes with each day… When he reaches this point in his works, it is when he best fulfills his mission as a painter, since he makes us participants of what he wanted to discover, which helps us achieve a more feasible way of looking at the world.”
