biography

"I like to play with water and to measure myself with the magic of nature, the figurative approach of my art has within it a level of abstraction that allows me to transmit emotions at a deeper level. My aim is to be able to explore more and more on different textures and with different techniques in order to capture the essence of light and movement. Art has the power to show different worlds generated from a blank canvas, I want to share this process through my work" 

Michele Bajona lives in Mexico City where he paints and practices architecture.
In 1988 he becomes a member of the artistic circle La Soffitta where he discovers the magic of watercolors thanks to maestro Otello de Maria.
In 2001 he starts his nude studies with watercolorist Frederic Wong at the Art Student League of New York. He has been an active member for 5 years and a teacher at Cercle Artistic S. Lluc in Barcelona. The artist has shown his work in collective and solo exhibitions in Europe and the US.
In 2011 he won the first prize for best video documentary at the 54th Venice Art Biennial, Padiglione Italia.
