Oil on canvas

Miguel Barragan says that he is interested in showing that humanity is noble and good, that by developing their talents, they not only become happy people, but also make others love life and want to develop their own talent.

He uses photographs (mostly taken by his wife Maria Mendez) of people participating in a movement demonstrating some kind of talent, such as dancing, circus acrobatics or yoga.

What he enjoys most is drawing, so he uses characters in unusual poses to take the viewer out of their comfort zone and think about their lives so people can find their own answers.

He draws characters who do extraordinary things so that people who are still sleeping will wake up and see that there is more to life than just work for the sake of work.
