Gustavo Vélez's record for highest sculpture

DUBAI

Creativity is limitless!

 

Gustavo Vèlez is in the process of realizing a new sculpture, setting a new record in terms of height. The 16 metres artwork was commissioned by one of Oblong's most important collector.

 

This ambitious project signs a new challenge for the artist! 

 

Vélez’s bronze and steel polished sculptures add an element that marble seldom exhibits, Reflection. If we are content to examine it as an abstract form, we can observe that in spite of the hardness of metal, the work seems to possess the fluidity of liquids and that we (the viewers) contribute to its movement. Vélez’s works have the precision of poetry as well as its openness.
