Juan Garaizabal Marsans
20 March 1971
Juan Garaizabal (born 1971 in Madrid) is a Spanish plastic artist, Garaizabal's work encompasses drawings, sculpture, light and acoustic installations, video art, and engraving. He is internationally known for his monumental public sculptures. His "Urban Memories", structures intertwining sculpture and illumination, are a recuperation of long-lost architectural elements occupying vacant, historically significant sites.
At 14, Garaizabal entered the IB 67drawing academy in Madrid where he studied for three years, later graduating from CESEM in Reims, France. His early work was split mainly between visual arts and the transforming of sundry spaces into lofts, a concept formally unknown in Spain. As a conceptual artist, a large part of his work has been done by hand, using such techniques as forging, carpentry, electricity, plasticity, and masonry – all skills acquired through time and experimentation. As of 2008, his main studio is in Berlin, Germany, although he maintains another in Madrid, Spain.
