Jordi Diez Fernandez, a sculptor based-in Barcelona, uses steel and metal scraps to create stunning human sculptures. His work on the sculptural forms of Lee Kuan Yew, the first Prime Minister of Singapore, and Ildefons Cerdà, a Civil Engineer and Urban Planner who designed the 19th-century extension of Barcelona called the Eixample, are towering in elegance and grandeur. The fluidity of steel and the charming natural poise of these two sculptures portray a narrative of great personality and leadership. Fernandez is truly an amazing artist!
Enjoy this remarkable artwork!
