Miguel Freitas grew up in Lisbon, Portugal and moved with his family to Toronto in 1983. His love of art and paintings started at a young age as he explored different ways of expressing his creativity. Starting out with a graphic arts degree, he entered into the creative world, first working as a photographer in the fashion and modeling fields and then as an illustrator for ad agencies. His diversity and ability to work with various media and styles has proven to be a great asset to his creative career, and his successes eventually led him to positions working as an art director for companies both in Canada and Europe. In 2004 he ventured on his own and made a career of what had until then been only a passionate hobby, painting; and he has since painted from his home studio in Toronto’s Beaches area. The colours are carefully chosen, giving off a strong presence and symbolic content to his work. The passionate reds, pure range of blues, and warm yellows are seared into your memory. His unique style and execution bring to mind images of great frescoes on old crumbling walls. The unusual use of sculpted mixed media and subject matter are a perfect marriage.
