Joan Miró i Ferrà [ʒuˈan miˈɾo i fəˈra] (* 20 april 1893 in BarcelonaCatalonia; † 25 December 1983 in Palma) was a spanishCatalan PainterGraphic designerSculptor and Ceramist.

His early works, building on Catalan folk art, show influences of the Cubism and of the Fauvism on. From the early to the mid-1920s, the artist completed in Paris, influenced by the prevailing art movements of the Dadaism and Surrealismthe fundamental change in style that led him away from representationalism. As a representative of the Classical Modern with his imaginative pictorial motifs, was one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. His magical symbols for moon, stars, bird, eye and woman are among the best-known elements of his art. The disturbing late work, such as the series Toiles brûlées (Burnt canvases) was a staged destruction, a protest against the commercialisation of art and an expression of his demand to "murder painting". In public space, for example, his ceramic walls adorn the UNESCO-building in Paris and the Wilhelm Hack Museum in Ludwigshafen am Rhein; monumental sculptures have been erected in squares in Barcelona and Chicago, among other places.
