"I like to play with water and to measure myself with the magic of nature, the figurative approach of my art has within it a level of abstraction that allows me to transmit emotions at a deeper level. My aim is to be able to explore more and more on different textures and with different techniques in order to capture the essence of light and movement. Art has the power to show different worlds generated from a blank canvas, I want to share this process through my work" 

Michele Bajona is a contemporary figurative artist born in 1971 in Vicenza, Italy. Educated as an architect, he learned the art of painting from his hometown maestro Otello de Maria and later focused on watercolors with Frederic Wong at the Art Student League of New York. He has been an active member and a teacher at Cercle Artistic S. Lluc in Barcelona.

The artist has shown his work in collective and solo exhibitions winning the first prize for best video documentary at the 54th Venice Art Biennial, Padiglione Italia.

He currently lives in Mexico City where he paints and teaches art.
