Miguel Trelles is based in Manhattan, New York.
Drawing is the essence of his art. He travels through painting and also through engraving, using different techniques, especially serigraphs.
As a printmaker, Trelles works predominantly with silkscreens, dwelling with dark humor on pre-Columbian icons, colonial archetypes, and contemporary Latino sensibilities. The work of Miguel Trelles has been exhibited in New Jersey, Connecticut, Miami, San Juan, Santo Domingo, Havana, Tegucigalpa, Lima, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and Paris.
