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.

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 in using primarily a landscape format accentuates a landscape and invites the viewer to partake in the artist's vision. Considered a master of depth and light, Piedro enjoys painting 'passages' in nature, —the visual passage of valleys and mountains, to quiet forest roads, —viewers are invited to journey into his paintings visually and emotionally, and feel the quiet, meditative quality of his environments.  

Peidro 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 phenomenon to Peidro, and is a continual subject in his paintings. The water not only reflects light, but also the vitality and myriad colors of the natural world.  His attraction to the force of nature is indisputable.  And his admiration translates eloquently onto canvas through use of delicate brushstrokes and thick layers.

A professional artist for over 40 years, Miguel Peidro has developed a world wide following.  With 17 One-Man Shows in Japan, and many shows across the globe, and near home in Barcelona, Peidro's show history, and resume is too numerous to count.
