Marcos Míguez Puhinger (Redondela, Pontevedra, Spain 1977).
Self-taught artist, painter, muralist and draftsman.
Since he was little he showed concerns about drawing and painting, deciding seven years ago and encouraged by his surroundings, to leave his job in an automotive factory to dedicate himself fully to his passion.
Versatile artist who cultivates and handles various painting techniques: watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, but what has really made him known are his works made with Bic pens.
We could not be more proud to have him in our project.
Work "Fish Memory" (made with Bic pens).
Carefully composed and detailed works that make you doubt if you are looking at a photograph or a painting and this is due to his passion for the work of the hyper-realistic American artists of the 60s. He likes to play with transparencies and reflections of chrome surfaces , tattoos and the human figure.
Your source of inspiration? It thrives on everything around it.
* Hyperrealism: Artistic current, especially pictorial, which emerged in the late 1960s and which is based on the faithful, almost photographic reproduction of reality.

History: Without a doubt, one of the things I like to draw and paint the most is the eyes, with their different textures, brightness and transparencies. Something that I have seen in the exhibitions is the amount of time that visitors spend in front of the work, as if hypnotized by the eyes of this "Sphinx Cat" that do not leave anyone indifferent. This...
History: The drawing takes as inspiration the photograph taken by Janite (Vigués photographer) of Gael, a great friend and well-known hotelier from the city of Vigo (Pontevedra) and also brother of Silvia Superstar, singer of the band Killer Barbies. The work, although of a moderate size, is the result of 50 hours of work and my passion for tattoos and...
History: Vermouth Sunday was born after a move, the way to thank some friends for their help was to get together to have a vermouth at the “A Mina” tavern (Vigo).
