Miquel Herrero was born in Gandia, (Spain) in 1984.  He started his artistic vocation at an early age.  Once he graduated from high school, he moved to Valencia where he joined the School of Fine Arts.  He completed his studies with two master degrees, one in Artistic Production and other in Conservation and Restoration of Noteworthy Cultural Property.

Herrero’s artwork intends to recreate the lost secrets of the old master painters.  Through continuous experimentation and historic investigation, he creates artwork with the same artist techniques and processes the old masters utilized centuries ago.

Miquel focuses on creating unique reproductions which celebrate the style and elegance achieved by the old masters of the past. The materials and pigments employed are the same that were utilized hundreds of years ago. The exceptional aging replication is achieved through unconventional applications and materials.

His artwork is in museums, public institutions and private collections.  Saper Galleries is honored to present to the world, the amazing talent of Spanish artist Miquel Herrero.
