Alain Bellino sculpture


Alain Bellino was born in Nice in 1955. In the 80’s, he discovered the world of metal and ornamentation in his father’s workshop where he learnt gold and silver plating and bronze restoration.
After many years of practice and technical research dedicated to rehabilitating and re-composing objects, he engaged in an artistic way around 2010. The ornament that is torn from its original support then becomes the very structure of his sculptures.
Bronze ornamentations assembled by extremely precise welding are the base material.

Steel Monumental Human Forms by  Jordi Diez Fernandez

'Amantes de Acero' Behance.

Barcelona-based sculptor Jordi Diez Fernandez works pimarily with welded steel fragments to create monumental human forms.

Jordi DIez began his profesional trayectory with many• colaborations in the scenography world, as the making of most of the sculptures in EXPO-SEVILLA, many works for the ALBENIZ theater, ALFIL theater, and MARIA GUERRERO theater. Always in combination with his own personal work. His first important order was a nine meters sci representing an angel, nowadays owned by Nacho Cami.

From that moment on, he divides his work between scenography, colaborations with other sculptors in public sculpture jobs, and his own production, both public and private.
In those days saw the light the monumental sculpture “Leda”, another monumental albox marmorean sculpture, placed in a public square in Majadahonda, Madrid.
