Miquel Gelabert graduated from the University of Barcelona, Spain in 2005 and has subsequently been awarded many honors. He has been selected to participate in numerous group and public exhibitions throughout Spain, in locales including the Museu de Granollers, Fundació Cuixart, Fundació Valvi (Barcelona), the Fundació Àngel Planells  (Blanes, Spain),  Palau Moja (Barcelona) and specially the Fundació Arranz-Bravo in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain, where he had an important solo show in 2009, and many group shows. His works has been exhibited in Barcelona (Spain), Wüpperthal (Germany), London (UK) and Tokyo (Japan). Since 2014 he is being represented by Franklin Bowles Galleries in New York and San Francisco.

In his paintings, Gelabert succeeds in gathering many of the main features of his pictorial corpus: the austerity of forms, his search of the essence, the mystery and the importance of colour, of space and textures as the backbone of composition. He has refined the forms of landscape in nature and artificial geometry by harmoniously blending them together. Small geometric volumes, fascinating and enigmatic, are set in large surfaces of colour.” – Germán Sierra
