Jaume Plensa

Jaume Plensa. Born in Barcelona in 1955, he studied at La Llotja and at Bellas Artes Sant Jordi. Since 1980, the year of his first exhibition in Barcelona, ​​he has lived and worked in Germany, Belgium, England, France and the United States, currently residing in Barcelona.

Jaume Plensa is an artist of materials, sensations and ideas. His references include literature, poetry, music and thought. He considers himself, above all, a sculptor, although his creative process has gone through multiple disciplines. His works address the very condition of being: its physical and spiritual essence, the consciousness of itself and its past, its moral codes and dogmas and its relationship with nature.

Jaume Plensa exhibits regularly in galleries and museums in Europe, the United States and Asia, but a very significant part of his work is the one he develops for public spaces. His works are permanently installed in Spain, France, Japan, England, Korea, Germany, Canada, the United States, China, etc.

He has been a professor at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and regularly collaborates with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as a visiting professor. He has also given numerous lectures and courses in universities, museums and cultural institutions around the world.
