Joan Miró (died 1983 aged 90) – Surrealist, colourful with lines coming out of shapes that looks like a biro made them

(Pronounced huhn mee-roh)

Miró - Always used a biro

One (Joan) pen was always used, a biro (Miró) in his paintings.

Note: He didn't use a biro in his paintings but from a distance there are mostly long lines that stick out of coloured shapes on his artwork. This gives you an instant way of recognising his work over other contemporaries.

There is a museum in Barcelona, dedicated to his work that he produce in the city where he was born.
