About - Miguel Freitas
Miguel Freitas was born in Lisbon, Portugal and moved with his family to Toronto, Canada when he was a teenager. Starting out with a Graphic Arts degree he entered into the creative world, first working as a photographer and then as an illustrator for Ad agencies. His artistic diversity has proven to be a great asset to his creative career and his successes eventually lead him to positions working as Art Director for companies both in Canada and Europe.
The vibrancy in his controlled use of colour is what often strikes his audience first. There is a strong presence and symbolic content to his work leaving you emotionally charged. These scenes convincingly depict the naive impressions and memories left in your mind years after visiting a place. You will lose yourself in the warmth and comfort of a familiar place.
The goal is to alter reality just enough to create my own unique scene. There's a certain intentional distortion and exaggerated movement in my work, I use forced perspective to make a path that leads the viewer's eye into the scene. I want my audience to feel as if they could step into my paintings, visually and emotionally.
