Manuel Munoz G.G. MRSS
Born in Mexico City in 1982, Manuel grew up in a family of artists, architects and designers and began making art from an early age. Manuel studied at Chelsea College of Arts and Design in London where he graduated with a BA in Fine Arts (Hon). Shortly after graduating he became the first Mexican member of the Royal Society of Sculptors. After many years of living in Britain, Manuel returned to Mexico to run a project of monumental sculptures in the Sonoran Desert. The project continues and Manuel is currently living in Mexico City.
"Sculpture is a medium I choose to use because it exists in space and time. My intention is to stress the vital role of physical engagement in our aesthetic encounters, emphasising what must be experienced rather than merely seen. Made out of sturdy, manmade, industrial materials with smooth surfaces, my steel sculptures are connected with lines that ‘cut’ the space by being pulled towards a point, cresting smaller and intangible ‘inner’ spaces".
