Born in Valencia in 1970, Miguel began his Fine Arts degree at the Facultad Politécnica de Valencia in the late 80s, giving up two years later, disappointed by the method of teaching and the faculty. Around the same time, he encountered the realistic painter Francisco Ugeda, in whose workshop he learned the technical fundamentals of painting. In parallel he studied the Violin, finishing an advanced degree in the discipline. He combined painting with his work as a musician with orchestras and chamber groups for years but left the violin in 2002 to fully focus on his career as a painter. His painting is characterized by a realistic language that does not bow to matter or gesture. After an initial period marked by musical themes, his interests in Jungian psychology and alchemy gave rise to a series of works with a symbolic charge, sometimes obvious and others more subtle, as in his series of indoor scenes. Moya has shown in various exhibitions in Spain and the United States.
