about: 

Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1979, former architect and university teacher Alejandro Vega Beuvrin decided to emigrate to Barcelona in 2014, and to create a studio dedicated to the production of abstract metal sculptures in large and small scales.

Deeply influenced by the political situation of his country, Alejandro Vega Beuvrin designs politically committed metal sculptures that invite the viewer to relate with the space and with the other viewers. Made of metal sheets with colorful surfaces - sometimes reflecting their surrounding environment as a mirror would do - these abstract sculptures are composed by metal sheets with 90° angles, offering several points of view for the viewers.

After five years, Alejandro Vega Beuvrin has been recognized in the contemporary art world. He permanently exhibits four sculptures in the public area of Caracas. His sculptures were part of the exhibition “Carré Latin Festival” at the gardens of the Palais Royal in Paris. His work was presented in New York at the auction sale for the foundation “Faith and Joy” (Fe y Alegria). In 2018, Alejandro Vega Beuvrin was in the finalist selection of the sculpture biennale prize of the Foundation Vila Casa. In 2019, he continues his career as a finalist for the best artistic proposition prize of the A-FAD (The Fostering Arts and Design), an association of artists and designers.
