Joseph Breton uses the work of Joan Miro as a springboard for his style. The works, in mixed media, oil or acrylic on paper, boldly employ primary colors. The artist's spontaneous style sets the mood like a musical composition, designed to elicit an emotional response from the spectator. Breton explains, "It is within such abstract arenas that I run freely. It is the playground of expression, for the child in me...My art is bold, soft, loud, silent, peaceful and exuberant, but never empty." Fluent in Spanish, Italian, and English, Breton travels frequently, dividing his time between Spain, Italy and the United States.
