Néstor Sanmiguel Diest

Zaragoza-born artist Néstor Sanmiguel Diest creates obsessive and highly personal compilations of drawing, painting, collage, layering various found and crafted materials in revealing tiers of pictorial narrative. A leading member of the Spanish avant-garde in the 1980s, he developed a keen visual language informed by literature, philosophy and the Post-Conceptual movement. The complex surfaces of his works interweave various abstract and referential symbols, voracious in their unfixed intention.


Sanmiguel Diest’s work was the subject of a comprehensive 2007 retrospective at the MUSAC, Leon. Since then, he has participated in exhibitions at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, and Fundação Serralves, Porto. His work is included in the collections of institutions such as the MACBA, Barcelona, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, and MUSAC as well as prominent private collections internationally.
