About the artist
Miquel Barceló (Felanitx, Mallorca, 1957) has won the National Award three times and is considered one of the contemporary artists with the greatest international projection. Despite being immensely prolific and diverse, Barceló's artistic ensemble has a constant fascination with nature, the passage of time and a return to the origin of the human being.

An artistic nomad, Barceló often incorporates into his style elements of his travels around the world, especially to Africa and the Himalayas, and maintains a permanent link with his native Mediterranean.

Aurea Dicta
Aurea Dicta is a unique work of literature that collects the classic texts selected by the most prominent intellectuals of the Bernat Metge Foundation to bring together the essence of our civilization.

After having studied them in depth, Miquel Barceló has selected 562 aphorisms from the original volume and has interpreted them in a work of art where visual arts, thought and publishing merge.

The legacy of this ancient wisdom is more relevant today than ever.
In Aurea dicta, Barceló's art dialogues with the thought of authors such as Virgili, Ciceró or Seneca, among many other essential names from Antiquity.

The volume consists of a total of 228 pages, with more than 120 pictorial interventions by Miquel Barceló, printed on the same Fedrigoni paper used in the creation of the original and which reflect the vital wealth of the artist.
