Jaume Plensa was born in 1955 in Barcelona, Spain.
Works and lives in Barcelona, Spain.
This sculptor from Barcelona presents a work of friendly confrontations: among dark and light; between the imprints of the past and the opening towards the future; between natural formations and man’s creation, and between the immensity of noise and the most intimate realms of silence. In addition to being one of the leading exponents of the current sculpture scene, Jaume Plensa is internationally known for his dedication to art in public spaces. The sculptor calls the need to decompose reality and affirm nature in order to fulfill a purpose: “to reintroduce beauty to society”.
