Miguel Paredes is an artist and urban realist who combines the exhilarating sense of New York graffiti art with the skill and perceptiveness of a truly exceptional artist. Growing up in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Parades exuded early signs of artistic ability and accepted an invitation to New York City's prestigious Fiorello La Guardia High School of Music and Art. His studies at Fiorello coincided with the explosion of street culture in the city. Paredes drew inspiration from notorious pop artists like Andy Warhol and Keith Haring and plunged headlong into the world of graffiti and pop art. Paredes left New York to come to Miami Beach and took a studio, where he became one of their most prosperous artists, focusing on mixed media and conceptual art. Paredes is well known for his iconic, Japanese anime-inspired digital series Pulgha Birds. Paredes is breaking new ground in exciting and innovative art movements. He continues to make his mark by further expanding his inspirational environment and simultaneously showcasing his works at local, national and international shows.
