Juan Garaizabal is a conceptual Spanish artist from Madrid, Spain. Though Garaizabal works in a broad range of mediums such as drawings, sculptures, light installations, video art, and engraving, he is mostly known for his monumental public sculptures that have earned him the title of “Landscape Curator”. Garaizabal approaches the spaces he works in with a humanistic mindset. His creations often combine sculpture and illumination, and are recuperations of long-lost architectural elements occupying vacant, historically significant sites. Garaizabal has showcased his monumental sculptures around the world and currently lives and works between Berlin, Madrid and Miami. His sculpture “Vase Tuileries IV, currently on view at De Buck Gallery on the occasion of the group exhibition Opulent Landscapes, is a reconstruction of the lost Vases of the Palais des Tuileries, in Paris.
