Bio

Juan Garaizabal is a conceptual artist, sculptor, and printmaker.
A multifaceted artist, he has also experimented with drawing, video art, light and acoustic installations, and is internationally known for his monumental public sculptures.
His personal project Urban Memories recovers missing sculptural structures and light architectural elements, filling historically significant urban voids.

I work on the past and try to reflect on its extraordinary elements within a minimum of lines. Sculpturally, I have focused on the development of materials by making drawings in the air, in a schematic form. I seek to generate the maximum sensation of presence, with the use of light as well.

Garaizabal studied drawing at IB 67, in Madrid, and did higher studies at CESEM, Reims, France, combining his creative beginnings with the transformation of spaces and lofts, gaining experience with different materials. In his current stage, he works between Berlin and Madrid in the conceptual intervention on public spaces.
He carries out a good part of his works with his hands, using iron and steel forging techniques, lighting, carpentry, masonry, and plastic materials.
