The Artist

Eduardo Chillida

Eduardo Chillida was a Spanish sculptor who created many prominent works. He focused on making abstract sculptures and was influenced by his time spent studying architecture at the University of Madrid in the 1940s. Rather than finish his degree, Chillida headed for Paris and began taking art lessons. He then started working on a series of busts and torsos, focusing on the human form, before developing his hallmark style of creating large, monumental pieces in the abstract style.
