Miguel Sobreira is an artist and photographer based in London, working in both analogue and digital.
Having originally studied Textile Design in South Africa, he went on to complete an Honours Degree in Fashion Photography at LCF in London. Miguel now divides his time between commercial work in the book cover and fashion industries, and his artwork.
Within his artwork he combines various media together with Photography. He breaks down elements or uses them ‘raw’, then reconstructing them into a new visual object. This reconfiguration of simple elements allows him to explore different ideas of childhood, evolution, religion, sexuality and creates a universal space in an abstract and playful way, trying to make sense of a world in chaos. His work is often bright and his background in textile design is evident in his love of pattern.
