Born in Barcelona, Miriam Escofet moved to England and gained a BA Honours Degree in 3D design from Brighton School of Art. She has had solo shows in London and Paris. Her work was included in the BP Portrait Award Exhibition, 2007.

The portrait is of Escofet’s brother, with whom she both grew up in Barcelona and also moved to London. She says: ‘I have always thought he has a “soulful” face and with his pale colouring I thought the simplest composition with dramatic lighting would best bring out those qualities.’ She worked from a series of sittings and from photographs.
