Born in 1974 in Mexico, Hugo G. Urrutia is a multidisciplinary artist-designer, interested in the cross-pollination between art and architecture. His artwork challenges the notion of what constitutes a piece of art. A graduate and active member of the Architectural Association in the United Kingdom, Urrutia’s work creates a distinct spatiality located at the interstice of art and architecture. His work explores and uses technology for design and fabrication, with a sensitive and conscious reminder of the creativity of human endeavor.
Urrutia is interested in conveying a strong concept and exploring different mediums by presenting his message in a very indirect format while creating a visual stimulation for the viewer. His latest series titled Flexible Rigids explores sculptural forms that simulate smooth harmonic movements of a flexible surface, initiating the process from a “rigid “surface.
