Juan Garaizabal

Juan Garaizabal is a conceptual Spanish artist from Madrid, Spain. Though Garaizabal works in a broad range of mediums such as drawings, sculpture, light, installations, video art, and engraving, he is most well known for his monumental public sculptures. Noted for his conceptualism, Garaizabal seeks out transformation among interactive spaces in regards to communicating to his audience. Garaizabal started his interest in spaces in the early 1990s, where he transformed many garages and warehouses in Spain into lofts, a brand new concept for the country. Though he didn’t stop there, and further furnished his newly created lofts into rooms for his drawings and installations, which led to the enlargement for most of his works. This has eventually led Garaizabal to the creation of his esteemed monumental public works, where he is regarded as a curator for landscape, approaching the spaces with a humanistic approach. Some of Garaizabal’s most noted work includes his solo piece, Bosque de Flores, a garden of giant flowers found in Valencia, Spain. Garaizabal has showcased his monumental sculptures across the world and currently lives and works between Berlin, Germany and Madrid, Spain.
