Gastón Sanmiguel

Disarm and Arm, without a doubt are his first memories. Repairing his mother’s knitting and sewing machines at an early age gave him the start of electromechanics, something that he would never put aside again, along with his studies, art and cycling. 2005 would be a defining year in his career, after living in New York and Los Angeles, expressing himself creatively would be his way forward. With more than 20 years of experience in electromechanics, the influences that shape his works are not subtle, brimming with perspectives, textures and different materials. As a sculptor, he never rushes to work, when he has an idea, he begins by shaping it in his imagination, making improvements, then his hands transmute the elements. Electromechanics together with cycling have made him see, over the years, too much “waste”, of which with the right magic he has managed to transform into more transcendental objects. His creations are his most honest expression, mixing all kinds of materials and shapes, without limitations, creating works many times based on the space that surrounds him. Garbage is a concept of the past, reuse is a concept of the present recycling, thinking is a timeless concept.
