(1980, Caracas, Venezuela) is a painter whose vibrant, bright works explore the fragile, natural motifs, such as butterflies or flowers.
His roses often stand alone, casting a delicate shadow against a richly colored backdrop that gains in density due to the presence of lines of poetry the artist paints onto the canvas.
Mieres’ works range in tone and atmosphere: some present an abundance of vivacious flowers that fill the frame, while others feature a single, tiny tricycle set against a vast background.
The artist graduated from the Cristóbal Rojas Visual Arts School in Caracas and was subsequently awarded a scholarship to study at the Art Institute of Bournemouth in England.
His work has been exhibited widely, both in Venezuela and also in the United States, Canada, Switzerland, France, Colombia and Costa Rica. Mieres’ work gained wide-ranging international exposure in 2010 when he won a contest organized by American Airlines and one of his paintings was used on the cover of the airline’s first class menu in their worldwide flights.
