Born in 1974 in Mexico, Hugo 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. As 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.
The monochromatic artwork is created with oil laquer paint on carved Baltic birch. This wall sculpture measures 29 inches tall by 38 inches wide with a depth of 5 inches. In this series titled "Flexible Rigids", Urrutia explores sculptural forms that simulate smooth harmonic movements of a flexible surface, initiating the process from a “rigid “surface. The artwork is signed by the artist on the back. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available.
