Antony Gormley












In a career spanning nearly 40 years, Antony Gormley has made sculpture that explores the relation of the human body to space at large, explicitly in large-scale installations like ANOTHER PLACE, DOMAIN FIELD and INSIDE AUSTRALIA and implicitly in works such as CLEARING, BREATHING ROOM and BLIND LIGHT, where the work becomes a frame through which the viewer becomes the viewed. By using his own existence as a test ground, Gormley's work transforms a site of subjective experience into one of collective projection. Increasingly, the artist has taken his practice beyond the gallery, engaging the public in active participation, as in CLAY AND THE COLLECTIVE BODY (Helsinki) and the acclaimed ONE & OTHER commission in London's Trafalgar Square.








Gormley's work has been widely exhibited throughout the UK with solo shows at the Whitechapel, Serpentine, Tate, Hayward Gallery, British Museum and White Cube. His work has been exhibited internationally in one-man shows at museums including Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Denmark), Malmö Konsthall (Sweden), Kunsthalle zu Kiel (Germany), National Museum of Modern Chinese History (Beijing), Antiguo Colegio deSan Ildefonso (Mexico City), Kunsthaus Bregenz San Ildefonso (Mexico City), Kunsthaus Bregenz (Austria) and State Hermitage Museum (St Petersburg). Gormley has also participated in group shows at the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Venice Biennale and Documenta 8 (Kassel, Germany). Major public works include ANGEL OF THE NORTH (Gateshead), ANOTHER PLACE (Crosby Beach, Liverpool) and HABITAT (Anchorage, USA). 

Gormley was awarded the Turner Prize in 1994, the South Bank Prize for Visual Art in 1999 and the Bernhard Heiliger Award for Sculpture in 2007. In 1997 he was made an Officer of the British Empire (OBE).  He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, an honorary doctor of the University of Cambridge and fellow of Trinity and Jesus College, Cambridge. Gormley has been a Royal Academician since 2003 and a British Museum Trustee since 2007. 

Antony Gormley was born in London in 1950.


















Antonio Javier Caparo









"Antonio Javier Caparo is a Cuban born illustrator, graphic designer and graphic novel artist. His realistic illustrations regularly appear in magazines, children and young adult books along with corporate and advertising work in the U.S. and South America. Some of his passions include animation and comics. He has been published around the world and has won numerous awards in multiple countries.

Much of his early career was spent in graphic design but he always felt passion for other worlds, magical characters and metaphorical stories. He soon afterwards decided to devote himself to illustration - both traditional and digital - creating each piece to be intense and conceptual.

He is a graduate of of the High Institute of Design in Havana and currently lives in Canada."

Italy
"This year I celebrates my half a century. If it is true that a picture can explain more than thousand words, I am what you see on the selfportrait above.
The picture says I love drawing and I love the graphite (also said I have an ugly face, but you are kind and pretend not to notice)
I always had overwhelming passions, and the drawing is one of them.
For a long time I have left to devote to other things, but I returned three years ago.
Unfortunately I did not study art, and everything I know I learned from experience and from reading some manual drawing.
For the moment I'm posting old drawings, but the company of many great artists pushed me back to draw, so be careful: I’m at work."
Franco Clun
