Born in Spain in 1953 as a child artist already showed a penchant for plastically works and sculpture. But since he could not count on family support, he turned his artistic skills in the textile industry. As in 1981 in his hometown of La Pobla de Claramunt an art school was founded, the "Escuela de Artes y Oficios", he accepts there the function of the rector. He gives this position after a few years in order to devote himself entirely to his sculptural work.

He creates sculptures that reveal a clear tendency to the figurative in dynamic, dance movement. In his world, man is focus on a creation that is constantly renewed. As the great masters of Greek Antiquity, he is always looking for the truth and the origin of human existence. With zest, he breaks up the rock and forms it into sculptures of unique beauty and expressiveness.

Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.
