  1. 1. Joan Miro
  2. 2. Some facts about Joan Miro• Joan Miro was a Spanish painter who loved to use bright colors and dark lines in his playful paintings. He was born in Barcelona Spain in 1893.• Joan Miro was friends with Picasso and Max Ernst, another painter.• Miro was called a surrealist painter. Surrealism is a very interesting style of painting. It involves painting about things that can appear in dreams, fantasy stories or maybe even on television. Surrealism was formed in the 20th century in 1924 by André Breton in Paris, France. This type of artwork is produced in a 2D format and is well known because the objects, scenery or background are normally things to do with fantasy. If you are painting a piece of artwork in the style of surrealism, you would have to use colors according to the mood of your piece, not colors found in real life. For example, if you were painting a gloomy, scary or sad sort of picture, you could use colors like dark blue, black and sometimes even purple depending on what the picture is supposed to represent• Joan Miró’s life philosophy was, “you must always plant your feet firmly on the ground if you want to jump into the air. The fact that I come down to Earth from time to time makes it possible to jump all the higher.”
