Tell us about yourself

"I’m from Colombia. I have been creating sculpture for 15 years from recycled steel combining ceramic, glass and marble. The re-use of materials appeals to me as I believe beauty can created from the under appreciated."



HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?


"I got started working with Professor Thomas Lollar at Teachers College/Columbia University. We collaborated in creating sculpture. I learned to weld studying at the Art Students League where I create my own sculpture combining welded steel and other materials."


WHAT INSPIRES YOU?


"I am inspired by the diversity of materials and I seek to have my sculpture celebrate the beauty of life."


DO YOU HAVE ANY UPCOMING PROJECTS YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT?


"I’m am excited that the Ancient Mirror sculptures that I create with Professor Thomas Lollar have been selected by European Cultural Commission to be exhibited at the Venice Biennale 2022."


HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT MAKERSPACE?


"My friend Humberto Perez told me about the Makerspace."
