There is a true simplicity and beauty in the work of . The incredible sculptures that resemble line drawings come to life through intricate details making them appear three dimensional and abstract. Based in Barcelona, a city to numerous painters, writers and architects, Cabezas studied sculpture at Pablo Picasso art school at the age of 19 and since then couldn’t stop his curiosity for experimenting with materials and anatomy. In fact, his fascination began when he was a child, playing with papers and plastics, and simply loving to do things with his hands.

Living in a city that is always evolving and attracting creative people, it didn’t take long for Cabezas to integrate into Barcelona with like-minded artists, designers and sculptors. After all, it was home to , , and many more famous artists of that time.

Over the years, his work has evolved from intricate and voluminous to more minimal and feminine aesthetic, bringing focus to the form. Predominantly working with metal, a sturdy material, it took years for the work to become effortless. Referencing the geometric carvings and lines, Cabezas’ portfolio offers more than mere decoration. His collections translate bespoke pieces for art and design enthusiasts into simplified forms and timeless shapes.

Admiring some of his sculptures from 2017, the range is honest and minimal in its construction to honour the character and quality of the metal. From a distance, one is easily fooled into thinking it’s a 3D body of work, existing somewhere between reality and abstraction.

Thanks to his discipline, experimentation and constant drawings, Cabezas achieves some astonishing results. His handling of the materials is careful and sensitive, creating visual experiences through his sculptures in the form of faces, flower vases and figurative objects just to name a few.

It’s hard not to be intrigued by how line drawings are transformed into sculptures. The brilliance of Cabezas’ work is in honing in on details of shapes, curves and reflection that encapsulate their authentic and playful side, adding fun to any space.
