A little more about Angel Orensanz

“The art just for being art is important and indestructible, everything else falls apart” Angel Orensanz says with conviction. And the sculptor does believe in the power of the arts. In 1992, he created the Angel Orensanz Foundation to sponsor the arts and as base for his work. The Foundation has helped him to become a famous artist, known internationally by his talent and with works all over the globe.

And know he has a Cannes prize with his name, always helping the arts.  But what does art mean to him? In an interview with Marta Gracia Sanchez for Aragondigital he affirms that art is public information, it can’t be taken very seriously and it is the only thing that is not broken and forgotten.

Born in Aragon, Spain, but based in New York City since the 80’s , Angel caught the world’s attention and the love of the art critics with his beautiful installations and pieces. This year, he went back to his home country to open his exhibition in University of Barcelona that goes until September. “Time, Space and Innovation” is his solo debut in Barcelona and it is an exhibition that interacts with nature, like a lot of his work.

Talking about his work, the Spanish sculptor uses different elements and formats for his art. His installations can be made out of steel, but also snow, he can have exhibitions in open nature spaces like Central Park in New York City, but also in closed museums, like the exhibition Time Split Sculpture in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.

A big part of his work took place in the foundation too, playing with fabrics he created Waves of Warms, with petals he designed The Titanic that never got to New York. His creative is enormous and he ofter creates pieces that are interactive too, so everyone can touch and play with it.
