    Biography : Ricardo Cardenas (b. Medellín, Colombia, 1966) His interest in art started at a very early age when he was only 5 years old. He studied arts at ‘Instituto de Bellas Artes’ in Medellín. Cardenas is also a Civil Engineer and holds Master's Degree in Manufacturing Engineering from the University of Massachusetts. While his engineering background has been fundamental for the development of his work, his inspiration is nature which he interprets with abstract elements and forms.

  • Carlos Cruz Diez  (+)
  • Juan Garaizabal

    Biography : He has accrued international renown for his monumental public sculptures. His "Urban Memories", structures intertwining sculpture and illumination, are a recuperation of long-lost architectural elements occupying vacant, historically significant sites. The lost landmarks are depicted at both their original sites and sizes. A truly versatile artist, Garaizabal’s multifaceted work encompasses drawings, sculpture, light and acoustical installations, video art, and engraving. Originally a conceptual artist, as a sculptor a large part of his preparatory and final work has been done by hand, using such techniques as forging, carpentry, electricity, plasticity, and masonry - all skills acquired through time and experimentation. As of 2008, his main studio is in Berlin, Germany, although he maintains another in Madrid, Spain and in Miami US. Well known, American art historian and critic, Barbara Rose has published a monographic book about his work that was presented in Chicago’s Art Fair in September 2016. They have also collaborated in projects such as "La Memorial del Giordano" at the 55t edition of the Venice Biennial.

  • John Henry  (+)

    Biography : John Henry’s monumental-scale sculptures have appeared in city plazas and public spaces across the Unites States since he first began working at this scale in the 1960s. A forerunner of Chicago’s contemporary public art scene, John Henry’s work has been highly visible in public collections ever since. His return to working at the monumental scale in the 1990’s led to a strong interest in his work in the international arena. The appeal of John’s work is not simple aesthetic. His massive sculptures confront the surroundings at a scale that completes with the man-made environment and nature’s wonders. One attraction of sculpture at the scale is the work’s ability to transcend environmental challenges and cultural barriers. Reacting to forms within our personal landscape is a shared human experience. Whether John Henry’s work is installed within the ancient walls of the twelfth-century chapel in Italy or a metropolitan park in contemporary China, he design a perfectly adapted form that awaits the human encounter. He has managed to create sculptures that become virtual monuments in their respective settings, so much a part of the viewer’s everyday lives that the Works develop pinto meeting places, points of reference, and actual icons for the cities in which they reside. The sculpture becomes and integral part of the communities visual lexicon and if removed, as in the case of Jaguar in Vancouver, the city protests that essential part of the landscape is now absent.
