The imagined citiscapes by Miguel Angel are like an urban utopia in their perfection. Organized and structured, they consist of windowless high rises and homogenous buildings of various heights rendered from high vantage points.

The geometric blocks of color almost appear as landscapes. The contrasting rooftops and definitive shadows of his imaginary urban centers play with space and illusion, giving the work a sense of movement and expansion.

He’s played with both monochromatic and multicolored palettes ranging from muted to vibrant, and they all manage to achieve a sense of harmony, much like the artist’s unexpected but optimistic view of rapid urbanization and its diversity.

The artist says that the shape of the buildings represents his perception of reality and reason, and believes that colors, like people, change and depend on those around them.

Some are painted as if directly overhead; others are rendered as if viewed from a lower angle, with a glimpse of a horizon.
