Miguel Malagon/ NOAPS Signature Artist

Miguel Malagon is originally from Guanajuato, Mexico and grew up in East Chicago, Indiana. He received his formal training at the American Academy of Art in Chicago.


Continually working at his craft, he can often be seen painting on the streets of Chicago and its suburbs, and at the Palette and Chisel where he works from the live model. His genre work reflects on daily life with scenes of light filled with color.


Miguel exhibits at Paul Henry’s, Indiana, and Ann Nathan Gallery, Chicago. His work hangs in private and public collections including the Sand Ridge Bank, Highland, IN, Crown Point Civic Center. He was recently featured in Southwest Art Magazine’s Artist’s to Watch, November 2013 issue. Miguel is a NOAPS Signature Artist Member and he was the Best of Show recipient at the Best of America Exhibit 2013. He has also received several awards and recognitions in other NOAPS exhibits.


"I am drawn and attracted to scenes of everyday life and everyday people, they offer a glimpse into the lives of people and places that we might not other wise notice. I want the viewer to enter that world and see what I saw as I painted the scene, while trying to retain the fidelity and integrity of the scene and the people as best I can." - Miguel
