Jaume Plensa is an internationally renowned Catalan sculptor and artist born in 1955 in Barcelona, Spain, cosmopolitan capital of contemporary art.
Jaume begin by working with recycled materials such as iron or bronze and then abandons figuration, working only on the shapes and volumes and introduced technological materials or devices, primarily to add light or oppositions between transparency and opacity. These contrasts gives its scultpures a totally unreal look in the gardens where they are installed. They are both fine and delicate but so impressive.
