joan miro fish
A careful study of the abstract shapes and lines used here by the artist will help you to discover the fish, from the imaginative mind of Miro. The artist concentrates on the eye and scales for detail on the fish, allowing the viewer to recognise what is meant, and then constructing the rest of the image in their own mind. One commonly quoted comment from this Catalan painter, sculptor and draughtsman, which is particularly apt for this particular painting was “. In my opinion, mastering freedom means mastering simplicity. Then, at most, a line, a color, is enough to make the picture. ”
This simplicity of colour and line can be seen through out his career, as well as in the work of other famous modern artists from the 20th century, such as Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky, Mark Rothko, Paul Klee and Jackson Pollock. The Singing Fish, both in it’s simplicity and also the subject matter, has clear influences from prehistoric cave paintings which Miro is known to have studied and sought ideas from early on in his career. The bold colours and child-like capture of objects is typical of abstract art in general and more of these ideals can be found in the work of those artists mentioned here, as well as Pablo Picasso too.
Miró married Pilar Juncosa in Palma (Majorca) on 12 October 1929. Their daughter, María Dolores Miró, was born on 17 July 1930. In 1931, Pierre Matisse opened an art gallery in New York City. The Pierre Matisse Gallery (which existed until Matisse’s death in 1989) became an influential part of the Modern art movement in America. From the outset Matisse represented Joan Miró and introduced his work to the United States market by frequently exhibiting Miró’s work in New York.  
In 1981, Miró’s The Sun, the Moon and One Star—later renamed Miró’s Chicago—was unveiled. This large, mixed media sculpture is situated outdoors in the downtown Loop area of Chicago, across the street from another large public sculpture, the Chicago Picasso. Miró had created a bronze model of The Sun, the Moon and One Star in 1967. The maquette now resides in the Milwaukee Art Museum.

UIN shoes are the result of the aesthetic vision of Fernando Acevedo – Spanish artist strongly linked with Barcelona and Toledo. Inspired by the exceptional artwork of Antoni Gaudi, Fernando incorporated subtle Spanish elements into UIN shoe design. This is why UIN Footwear bears Acevedo’s signature – a map of Spanish city Toledo imprinted on the underside of each shoe. Additionally, all UIN shoes pay tribute to Gaudi’s artwork Casa Milaà whose wavy structure was adopted in a curvature of UIN shoe sole representing Gaudi’s artistic belief – “The straight line belongs to men, the curved one to God.”
UIN loafers have cutting-edge SARP Shock Guard Technology integrated for the purpose of reducing foot pressure. The parts of the feet which are the most exposed to the pressure during dynamic activities are covered with Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate known for its shock-absorbing properties and buoyancy. The remaining part of UIN insoles is made of the carefully chosen proportion of OrthoLite and Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate to deliver the optimal balance between support and cushioning. SARP Insole Solution incorporated in UIN loafers’ pad effectively absorbs shocks and reduces foot pressure allowing to minimize the risk of injuries and improving comfort for prolonged walking & standing sessions. The versatility of SARP shock guards helps to distribute pressure, provide stability, balance, and comfort during both static and dynamic activities.
