Jaume Plensa, born in Barcelona in 1955, has been working internationally as an artist since 1980.
A winner of both national and international awards, Plensa’s prolific work encapsulates themes of globalization and human presence. He has experimented with a number of different mediums such as steel, bronze, synthetic resins, light, alabaster, marble, sound, plastics and the use of animated features and LED lights lending a vital visual element to his works.
Jaume Plensa’s solo exhibitions at major international museums and prestigious public art projects have confirmed his status as one of the foremost contemporary sculptors. A large body of his work can be seen until January 2012 in the stunning location of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the United Kingdom.
He is currently working on several new projects including “Wishing Well for the Bow” in Calgary, Canada and “Mirror” for Rice University in Houston.
