MIGUEL PEIDRO

Miguel Peidro is from Alicante, Spain and trained as an artist in the old-world way, —alongside well-known Spanish painters such as Vincente Moya, Alex Alemany, and Juan Ferri.

Peidro's choice of the panoramic format accentuates a landscape and invites the viewer to partake in the artist’s vision. Upon viewing Peidro’s paintings, one cannot help but feel the quiet and meditative quality of his environments.  He holds a special sensibility and awareness towards nature that resonates through paintings that are luminous, tranquil, evocative of the grandeur and detail of nature's majesty. 

Light reflecting on water is an ever-engaging and mysterious phenomenon to Peidro, and is a continual subject in his paintings. The water not only reflects the light, but the vitality of the natural world. His attraction to the force of nature is indisputable. His admiration for both painting and nature translates eloquently onto canvas through use of delicate brushstrokes and thick layers. 

My passion for both painting and nature are mixed within myself. This is the reason I paint landscapes. I find much inspiration in taking nature walks during my travels throughout Europe. I’m not interested in current art trends, I just paint what I like.

All of my paintings follow the same process. Observation, emotion, and the desire to capture on canvas what I’m seeing. I always use oil on canvas, and in some nature scenes I use oil on wood. My inspiration comes from selecting the places where I’ll paint. I search for beautiful forests and especially prefer the fall and spring, as those are the seasons when the finest displays of color can be found.
