Miguel Ángel Fúnez
The meteoric journey of this artist goes hand in hand with the complexity of his work. Miguel Ángel Fúnez (Madrid, 1988), graduated in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, has created his own style based on a cartography of paradoxical images and visual traps, where an ambiguous game is established between what we know and what we do not know, between what is real and what only seems real. With this unique iconography in the art market, he articulates a critical and conceptual comment that goes from the invasive human presence in nature to the cloning of species in biotechnology or even a call to attention to scientific drawing, photographic language or cartoons. But he does not do it by launching an apocalyptic message, but by applying concepts such as curiosity or humor.
In recent years, Fúnez is one of the best represented Spanish artists in Asia, with Gallery Unplugged in Seoul (South Korea), where he held a solo exhibition in 2022, or even participating in fairs such as Art Tainan and One Art Taipei in 2023, in Taiwan. He has also exhibited with Ángeles Baños gallery, in Spain, and at Krause Gallery, in New York. He has artworks in different private collections, like the Fernando Mª Centenera Jaraba Foundation and at the San Quirce Royal Academy of Art, among other institutions.
