Miquel Barceló studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Palma de Mallorca and the Fine Arts Academy in Barcelona. Barceló achieved international acclaim in 1982 for his participation at Documenta VII in Kassel. In 2004, Barceló's watercolours illustrating Dante's Divine Comedy were shown at the Museé du Louvre in Paris, making him the youngest artist ever exhibited at the museum.
