Víctor MIRA


CATALOG  |  BIOGRAPHY

Born: 1949, Zaragoza, Spain. Dead, 2003, Breitbrunn.

Experience: He traveled across the peninsula to different places such as Madrid, Barcelona or Pamplona and then went on to visit countries such as Germany or the United States, invited by the Meadows Museum of Dallas. In 1975 he published El libro de las dos hojas, and in 1978 Aesthetics kebrada aragonesa. In addition to the publications he began to work on his book Tierra in 1979, and at the beginning of the eighties he prepared his book of prints One Hundred Images of Africa, to be published years later, in 1996 specifically. Publications followed both books and posters in international journals, as happened with A mere crisis is not enough in 1993 or Salvador Dalí's The two most clever sons in 1998. Of this decade we must mention the invitation of the artist Antonio Saura a Mira to participate in the commemorative exhibition of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Goya, in Zaragoza, in 1996. He will conclude this decade with his first photographic exhibition in New York.
