Miguel Palma (1964) lives and works in Lisbon. He attended several artistic residencies, such as “18th Street Arts Center’s Visiting Artist Residency Program”, Los Angeles, USA (2014), “ASU Art Museum International Artist in Residence Program, Desert Initiative: Desert One”, Combine Studios, Phoenix, Arizona, USA (2012), “Lucas Artists Residency Program”, Montalvo Arts Center, California, USA (2010), “Headlands Artist in Residence (AIR) Program”, Headlands Center for the Arts, California (2009) and “Location One International Residency Program”, Location One, New York (2007).
Palma's work frequently handles questions on technological development, ecology, the belief in images, the idea of power, the infant-juvenile world, the obsession for the machine. His art unfolds into drawing, sculpture, multimedia installation, video, artist books and performance.
