Miguel Rodrigues

Miguel Rodrigues (1987) studied Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon after studying Economics at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra.

In the last years he has chosen the baroque period and its history as an object of reflection, bringing it to contemporaneity and to the hyperbaroque. His works are theatrical pieces, inspired by the hyper-realities of society, the market and propaganda.

His works have been exhibited since 2015 in Portugal, Russia, Turkey and Belgium. Having passed by important Heritage European sites such as the Catherine Palace (St Petersburg), the Skapi Sabanci Museum (Istanbul), the Mayer Van den Bergh Museum (Antwerp).
