Miguel Sorto: About the artist

Miguel Sorto, who calls himself “The Cyclist”, is originally from Tegucigalpa, Honduras, but now makes his home and his art in Montreal, while also maintaining a studio in Barcelona.

Originally trained in international management, he decided to retrain in the arts in 2003. He formally studied electronic music (Microsufa, Barcelona), painting (Convent Sant Augustin, Barcelona) and contemporary dance (Centro Civico de Barceloneta, Spain). He is self-taught in sculpture.

Sorto devotes himself to improvising “new artistic forms of communication. His small sculptures are good examples of what he describes as “dark, socially implied expressionism.”
