Dani Miret was born in Tarragona, Spain in 1988. He gained his Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona. He experimented with styles such as Expressionism, Impressionism and Surrealism. During his studies he decided to leave for an year to Latin America, based in Chile, to be inspired by more natural themes. There he learned new plastic graphic techniques, since the environment allowed a deeper study of the gesture and texture. The return to Barcelona uncovered a personal conflict with social and cultural background, from which emerged a more intense interest in abstract-conceptual art.
When he finished his studies, he decided to spend a little more than half a year in a small house in the Pyrenees, the mountain range between France and Spain, where he disconnected from the urban life of a modern and cosmopolitan city, giving himself the freedom to develop new ideas.
After that stage, he bought a second hand van, built a bed inside and toured through Italy, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, meeting new people, cultures, languages and customs. He is currently based in Berlin.
