RIERA i ARAGO , Jose Maria ( Barcelona 1954 )

Riera studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona.

He has devoted his career to sculpting and painting together with graphic work.

Riera i Aragó recreates a world of machines and devices (zeppelins, planes and submarines) in his work and with great sensitivity.

As well as the bronze used for his sculptures, he uses iron and other materials to create a magical atmosphere for his planes and submarines to float in.

He has exhibited at solo and group exhibitions and is currently in various museum collections. He has also created large sculptures for public spaces.
