Chichu Art Museum

    a site rethinking the relationship between nature and people.   The museum has a large area and is deliberately labyrinthine. We go through dark corridors, we find ourselves in bright rooms, you climb the stairs in a skylight, it soon descends a slope obscure … It was designed by architect Tadao Ando and opened its doors […]

Jaume Plensa

Jaume Plensa is a spanish sculpture artist who makes eteral and serene head and human figures, who have a beautiful presence in several varieties of open space.

They make the association between the fat marker scribbles in a sketch book and the resulting sculpture manifested in an whimsical display of wood and moody black steel. This piece comes from the Paris studio of Pablo Relinoso who designs everything from home […]
