This latest artist showcase shares the life and work of Miguel Angel.
When did your interest in art/creating begin?
My interest began as a child; I liked to draw.
What is your starting point for each piece?
My starting point is surrealism, pop art and sometimes extravagant haute couture attires applied mainly to furry fandom.
Who/what influences your work?
My influence mainly comes from the costumes of designers like Alexander McQueen, or Galliano. Or from works of art like Romero Britto or Anthony Ausgang, and in the furry fandom artists like tamias6, paco panda, bitterkeit, jacato – among many many others!!
What do you hope the viewer gets from your work?
I like when the spectator finds my drawings strange, entertaining and funny – that causes joy and sometimes irony.
What do you think about the term Outsider Art? Is there a term that you think works better?
I see that this term applies to the art of those who did not have artistic academic training, or are naive. I am not sure about that, since it has expanded a lot and it is already art almost anything. In my case, what I do is for a more specific audience like Furry Fandom, but at the same time I want to take this art out of the niche.
What are you working on at the moment?
At this time I upload my work to my page of illustrations “Floky el caballito.” I will also resume an exhibition that I had planned for a long time ago about messenger pigeons that become smartphones so as not to feel relegated with technology.
Where do you see your work taking you in the future?
I don’t know yet, I have a lot of uncertainty about it.
