Miguel Villarino was born in Morales del Rey, Zamora, Spain, in 1959.
After studying in the Applied Arts school of Madrid, he develops an interest in engraving, beginning to work on it on his own. His desire to deepen on graphic arts, takes him to enter the workshop of the engraving master Theo Diertrich in Madrid, and later on to study in the National School of Fine Arts.
His interest in engraving will last, and unlike other artists, it has remained an important part of his artistic career. In 1983 he establishes his own workshop and in 1989 he opens M más M ediciones, a publishing house focused in graphic arts. Over the years he has collaborated with workshops in Italy, France, Germany or Portugal has presented several exhibitions centered in graphic arts only.
He has also been a professor, teaching engraving in the Centro Andaluz de arte Seriado (Andalusian Center of Serial Art), la Fundación CIEC, Kulturwerkstatt HAUS 10 de Múnich, Casa del Artista (House of the artist) in Costa Rica, Instituto Cervantes in Tangier…
Over the years he has received several awards such as the MBW painting award or the Reina Sofia Special Award. His work is present in several museums and public collections such as the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Museo Nacional del Grabado Español Contemporáneo de Marbella, el Museo Municipal de Arte Contemporáneo de Madrid o la Calcografía Nacional en Madrid.

During our participation in the Barcelona gallery Weekend, we will present an exhibition dedicated to J.Fín (José Vilató Ruiz Barcelona 1916-Paris 1969), nephew of Picasso. We will focus in his work since his arrival to Paris in 1946 up until 1969, this will allow us to see the evolution of his work. By the end of the 40s, it is characterized by austere and sober abstraction that will slowly return to a very personal figuration with a great poetic charge.
Part of the show will coincide with the one that the Picasso Museum will be presenting, “The shared studio, Picasso, Fín, Vilató, Xavier”, which will feature the work of the 4 artists focusing in his graphic production.
Mauricio Sbarbaro presents his latest works. Born in Uruguay in 1960, he has been living in Catalonia for more than 20 years.
This is his first show at Sala Dalmau, where he will display his latest paintings, full of an aparent simplicity that is in fact the result of a careful meditation.
This show gathers a selection of work from the latest two decades of Jordi Amagat’s career. His disturbing landscapes join stony constructions of great metaphysical power and a particular interpretation of the concept of the face that seizes his latest compositions.

Juan Alcalde, Manuel Ángeles Ortiz, Francisco Bores, Augusto Torres, J.Fín, Jacint Salvadó o Hernando Viñes.
Now currently settled in Montevideo, Juan de Andrés lives for more than 30 years in Barcelona, a period in which he exhibited regularly in the city.
Due to his constructivist formation, a movement closely related to our gallery, we began a friendship that now fructifies with this exhibition, in which we show his works of pure abstraction, something that allows him, as the writer and philosopher Guido Castillo said, “say everything with almost nothing”.
Victor Pedra presents his latest paintings and sculptures developing his habitual topics: women and circus.
Over the years, Belzunce has returned to the theme of the artist’s studio, showing the marchad selecting the works for the next exhibition or the artist facing one of his themes, like painting a nude or a still life.
The way of facing this topics is the painting, with powerful strokes, with the drawing as protagonist and, in this case, with an explosion of color that he combines with the use of collage, made up of different materials, thus allowing a great variety of textures in the compositions.
Pablo Bruera presents his latest works, metallic sculptures with movement. The viewer can move them thus creating new works from one piece.
Leguey uses old photography and disguises it with glazes and colleges of several materials, achieving a new vision of reality. A very personal vision that always holds a critical vision of society. The approach to the avant-gardes, with the use of techniques such as papier collé or the surrealist flavor that often impregnates his compositions, is done with his own voice, in a way that he appropriates this influence adopting it to his own language.
Retrospective exhibition dedicated to Juan Alcalde, one of the last living members of the Spanish School of Paris.
Retrospective show dedicated to Joaquin Torres-García. The exhibition covers all his career from the noucentisme of his early years to the constructivism of his last.
