José Miguel Pereñíguez
José Miguel Pereñíguez approaches his work from those aspects of representation that, in principle, escape him. The artist is nourished by culture, be it music, theater, architecture, ethnography… and from there, he reinterprets historical episodes in an intelligent way, vindicating craftsmanship in his work.
Pereñíguez resorts to historical and cultural references that he reconstructs, reproduces, deforms, denies or celebrates through an incessant work in the workshop that is the basis of his work.
José Miguel Pereñíguez holds a degree in Fine Arts, specializing in Painting, from the University of Seville. Throughout his career he has been awarded with different grants and prizes, such as the Generation project of Caja Madrid in 2006, the Velázquez de Pintura Scholarship-Prize (Ministry of Culture, 2007), the Lissone Prize in 2010, the Daniel Vázquez Díaz Scholarship of the Diputación de Huelva in 2015 or the I Premio Cervezas Alhambra (2017), being considered as one of the great emerging values of Spanish art.
His works are part of important public collections and museums, such as Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Patio Herreriano, Coca Cola Foundation, CAC Málaga …
