WORK
The sculptor from Vilassar de Mar, Joan Artigas Planas, has been one of the Catalan artists who has exhibited the most in galleries and art fairs throughout Europe for almost a decade. He currently works regularly in art galleries in France, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden.

The protagonist, without a doubt, of Artigasplanas ’work is the woman, a timeless, lonely, mythological woman who rests precariously on inaccessible constructions or making great efforts to overcome everyday walls.

The warm, sensual bronze woman dances on a rusty steel structure. A base that rises imposingly, creating a contradiction between the two pieces. However, in the works of Artigasplanas the geometric base and the figure find a surprising harmony. The sculptor manages to make the little goddesses coexist with everyday life. Reflecting the efforts, the joys, the day-to-day dreams in their expression.

Although at first glance, the work of Artigasplanas seems pleasant, easy to read and without traps, his work is complex and above all, very personal.

Teaching and sculpture are the great passions of this artist.
