Jesus Curia Pérez
Spanish, b. 1969, Spain
Jesus Curia Perez graduated in 1992 at the University of Madrid. Like his father, he wanted to be a painter. When he came into contact with sculpturing, he was so impressed that he decided to stop painting to fully concentrate on three-dimensional works. Europe was for a long time the most important market for this artist, but his work becomes more and more represented in galleries and art fairs in the United States and Asia.
Curiá's sculptures arouse something more than purely aesthetic pleasure. We can analyze his work rationally and emphasize the quality of its textures and its patinas, the roundness of its shapes, the bold combination of materials, the play on space,
movement or hieratic attitude, but in his case, the final result is infinitely superior to the sum of its parts. Jesús Curiá achieves a special magnetism in his sculptures, a halo of mystery that attracts us and responds to the deepest vibrations
of our soul."
