José Miguel Pereñíguez


In his work, José Miguel Pereñíguez (Seville, Spain, 1977) reinterprets historical episodes in an intelligent way, always claiming the values of craftsmanship.
Pereñíguez expresses himself fundamentally through drawing and sculpture or installation, resorting to historical and cultural references that he reconstructs, reproduces, deforms, denies or celebrates through incessant work in his studio.

José Miguel Pereñíguez has a degree in Fine Arts, specialising in Painting, by the University of Seville. Throughout his career, he has been awarded various grants and prizes, such as the Generación de Caja Madrid project in 2006, the Velázquez Painting Prize (Ministry of Culture, 2007), the Lissone Prize in 2010, the Daniel Vázquez Díaz Scholarship from the Huelva Provincial Council in 2015 or the 1st Alhambra Beer Prize (2017), being considered one of the great emerging values of Spanish art.
His works forms part of important public collections and museums, such as the Andalusian Centre for Contemporary Art, Patio Herreriano, Coca Cola Foundation, CAC Málaga…
