Teddy Cobeña Loor (born 16 April 1973 in Portoviejo)[1] is a figurative expressionist sculptor with a surrealist component. He lives in Barcelona.


He is the son of David Cobeña Vinces and Judith Loor Rodríguez.[1] In his adolescence he was interested in the study of anatomy having in the family bookcase a biography of Leonardo da Vinci. He begins his studies of medicine in Guayaquil and ends his formation in Barcelona as a radiologist and in preventive medicine,[2][3] there he begins at the same time a formation in sculpture at Massana School [ca], Barcelona Academy of Art [ca] and Florence Academy of Art.[3]

His bronze work "The dreams" is in the Palazzo Panciatichi in Florence,[4][5][6] at the museum of the government of Tuscany (Italy) since June 2013.

In November 2016 he received the international sculpture awards "Aigle de Bronze" and "Villa de Nice" in France,[7][8][9] on the occasion of the 28th "Aigle de Nice" Fine Arts Exhibition.


His work is characteristically figurative, initially influenced by Jean-Baptista Carpeaux and later by the dalinian surrealism[10]. In most of his sculptures the expressionist style and also surrealism is noted.[2]

He combines the patinas in many of his bronze sculptures resulting in a range of colors.[11][5][12]

The merger of emotional expressiveness, figuration and sometimes with surrealism (defined by himself as sensorrealism)[11][8][14] is seen in his works.
