Santiago Moix (b. 1960) works in a vein that recalls the styles of some of history’s other great Spanish artists, such as Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. He mines literature and Art History for scenes that provide points of departure for his fantastical abstractions. He has created work in a wide variety of media, though he is known primarily as a printmaker and painter. He was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship in 2002. Moix currently divides his time between Barcelona and New York City.
