Metal Skin: Street Sculpture
'Metal Skin: Street Sculpture (Piel de Metal, arte calle)' is a travelling exhibition and is the culmination of five years of work by Spanish artist Julio Nieto. It is comprised of eight large-scale, outdoor sculptures inspired by recurring dream themes, entitled: Viajero, ¿Y Alicia?, Enamorado de acero, Porqué me echaron del Cielo, Marea, Ícaro salvado, La Llamada and Coreografía.
Nieto describes the purpose of the work to him; “the public art experience allows anyone who walks by to inevitably participate, expanding their awareness of beauty. The passer-by is fascinated to find a sculpture in their everyday environment. A piece that is shared by people of all ages has the power to promote communication.”
The Metal Skin tour is finish in Barcelona by exhibiting at both the Diocesan Museum and Villa del Arte Galleríes. For more information click here.
