Miguel Tió, a native of the Dominican Republic, began his studies of painting with the Dominican artist Elias Delgado as well as the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes.
A move to New York in 1994 led him to Izquierdo Studio Ltd. for film and Television Production, window displays, opera and theater, which had a great influence on his artwork. His paintings show a dramatic and complex portraiture, irresistibly sensual and visionary, which exploits scale and luminosity without eschewing the personal and the poetical; works that entices the eye and rewards the mind. He has done five solo shows, the latest, ”Memories and Dreams” at the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center in Brooklyn NY. Group shows in New York, include: “Forms of Divinity” Williamsburg Art & Historical center, “New works by Artgroup”,SK417 Fine Arts gallery, New York. “Art Expo New York”Jacob Javits Center, New York. and “fragments of Illusions” (five Dominican artist), Peter Madero Gallery New York.
