The Public Art of Jaume Plensa

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
We have been huge fans of the works of Jaume Plensa for a long time, and always like sneaking a peek at the sculpture he has up in the Crosby Street Hotel, but his public art is where its at. The artist has lived in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, England, France, USA, and Barcelona, and is best known for his works using the human figure comprised with numbers. He recently had works installed in Calgary, Alberta and Helsinki, Finland.

  Renowned Spanish artist, Jaume Plensa, recently completed the following series of sculptures and drawings at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in Wakefield, England.  The artist’s work encourages viewers to explore the art in a tactile and sensorial manner.  Plensa is currently exhibiting a sculpture titled “Echo” in Madison Square Park in New York.  In a recent park visit, I was mesmerized by the pieces powerful shapes and demanding attention.  Be sure to visit the sculpture in New York before it comes down in August.
