Spanish sculptor David Moreno blurres the lines between two and three dimensions with his architectural works of art.
Within his sculptures, David Moreno creates fictional architectural designs. To look at his pieces is to get lost within them. Beginning as frantic cross-hatched sketches, Moreno then makes use of countless metal rods and piano wire in different lengths and sizes to develop his unique structural displays. The the actual materials are welded together to mimic their free-hand pencil origins.
A novelty of his most recent art in the series Favelas, is that they are constructed with resin, as part of his exploration around the creative possibilities of 3D printing.
In his latest work, David Moreno explores new territories. On one side, experimenting with color to include an additional dimension to his sculptures. On top of that, he is going just a little further in the building of imaginary spaces. Suspended on art gallery walls or from the ceiling, Moreno’s works tend to be illuminated by spotlights, which make long, soft shadows that contrast with the hard vertical lines of his sculptures. Moreno’s work has been exhibited around the world, including Istanbul’s Contemporary International Art Fair. In 2017, the artist also created a large, immersive installation in the United Arab Emirates titled “Connecting Doors.”
