Today, Design Gallerist present you Juan Muñoz and his comtemporany art.

 

Juan Muñoz was a Spanish artist recognized by his men sculptures.
Nowadays he is celebrated for his innovative combination of sculpture and installation art, in works that place figures in a specific architectural setting in order to blur the line between reality and artifice.

He first started being recognized in 1970 with his sculptures first depicting dwarves and mannequins, and later expanding his production to include ballerinas and animated figures in conversation, often mounted on block-shaped bases that give them a sense of inanimate repose.

 

He obscured the boundaries between sculpture, painting, installation, and performance.

In his series of Conversation Piece works, he incorporates the human figure into his public installations, evoking specific scenes, sites, and interactions in ambiguous scenes left to the viewer’s interpretation.

He died unexpectedly from a stomach hemorrhage in 2001, at just 48 years old.
