Osuna Miguel Conesa

My religious art does respond to the need to celebrate the day in which these three strangers came from "FAR AWAY LANDS" and felt the need to find out who the Messiah was. They answered the signs in the skies and the calling of the "COMET STAR" that took them to the village of Bethlehem in which the baby JESUS was born. My religious vision is dedicated around the figure of the birth of the Messiah and the Three Wise Men whose day is celebrated by joy on January the 6th.


I have painted all kinds of subject matters throughout my 34 year art career, but always had taken time to devote a few works a year to this fascinating subject. On December the 7th, 2006, I will have a one man show at the Casa Museo de los Santos Reyes, an Art museum dedicated to religious art and to the tradition of the three Wise Men, which celebrates all year round such great event which changed the history of humankind forever, the Day of Epiphany.

This up coming one man show will last for four months and will show a retrospective of my religious “Christmas Celebration Art” of the last 27 years (1979-2006) under the title of “De Lejanas Tierras” / From far Away lands. There will be a selection of 35 works, from the first nativity works I did back in 1979 until this year.
