Miguel Rodrigues understands art as an apology of the beauty seeking it through the hyper-reality of everyday life. In recent years, he chose the Baroque period as a matter of reflection and seeks to bring it contemporary, to Hyperbaroque.
He started his studies in Economics at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Coimbra but then decided to change to Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon University. He already had the opportunity to work with the Catherine Palace in Saint Petersburg; Museum Van Den Bergh in Antwerp; National Portuguese Coach Museum, Joanina Library in Coimbra; and Embassy of France in Portugal, among others.
“In the last few years I have focused my effort in studying and deconstructing the art and society of Baroque times. I strongly believe that many of the baroque characteristics are manifested today in a more subtle way in people’s daily lives, an hyperbaroque reality”
