Miguel de la Espriella

Miguel de la Espriella (born 1947), more commonly known by his artistic name, Noble, is a self-taught painter and sculptor from Sucre, Colombia, whose art has been presented widely within his country and throughout the world.

"There is in the painting of Miguel de la Espriella, "Noble", an explosion of light that comes from a background of shadows, the glare of the universe in the middle of a vegetable serfdom populated by birds and dragonflies. What makes an impact are his chiaroscuros with that essential validity that has always been present in Rembrandt. But in the concrete case of Noble it is not about imitation, but continuity, of a process that is forever in renewal and because of that, lasts. It is the survival of art and its real mode of expression while at the same time understanding it." [Published in the Colombian magazine FAMA (2000)]
