Miguel Angel Madrigal

Miguel Ángel Madrigal challenges expectation and perception of familiar objects, shapes, and figures. Evoking tender moments of belonging, feeling lost, excitement for new beginnings, and playful connection, he offers the viewer a renewed relationship with their own past, present, and future. He combines life-like sculpture with unexpected found objects to give new meaning to each, exploring balance, illusion, and texture. With the precision of an architect and the soul of an artist, Madrigal develops his own worlds full of wonder and connection.

He has exhibited in various spaces in Mexico, including the Enrique Guerrero gallery, at the Monterrey Femsa biennial, at the first, second and third National Biennial of Visual Arts of Yucatan, XXIV national meeting of young art Aguascalientes, at the national center of the arts, at the Chopo University Museum, at the National Center for the Arts, at the MUCA Roma, the Cultural Center of Spain in Mexico, at the Vasconcelos Library, at the Ibero-American University in Puebla among others.
