Filipe Miguel

Welcome painter/art instructor Filipe Miguel, or Mr. Fil to his students, to In-Focus Podcast Number 65. Filipe was born in France to Portuguese parents.

He immigrated from Portugal at a very young age and grew up in Brockton. Filipe Miguel earned his BFA in Painting and Art Education from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and, his MFA from the University of Connecticut.

He and his family moved to their new home in Rochester, Massachusetts. Filipe teaches Fine Arts at Barnstable High School. His art practice ranges greatly from drawing, painting, sculpture, art installations, and new media. His definition of new media is art which is not limited to any material and, as he says, “neither am I. I’m always exploring.”

Filipe Miguel has exhibited largely in southeastern Massachusetts and he is constantly on the lookout for places that are willing to show a bit more provocative work.

Listen in on his conversation as The Artist Index’s host, Ron Fortier delves more into Filipe’s life, his work, and his future ambitions. This episode was recorded with Zoom during the pandemic of 2020. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR THE PODCAST LINK or LISTEN HERE(new episodes are added a short time after being posted here)

The whole concept of The Artists Index and the journey we are on is are still in the making and very organic. And, at this critical time in our country’s history, challenged by the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have continued to podcast remotely, assisted by Zoom, in order to assure that our guests remain safe and, in the comfort of their home.

If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
