Nimrod Messeg uses innovative forging techniques to create delicate and extraordinary sculptures out of iron. Among the 15 sculptures on display, there are 14 metal torsos celebrating the beauty of the female form and one striking sculpture of a bull. In this exhibition visitors can admire two of the artist’s favourite pieces, the impressive El Vuelo, which is in the centre of the lobby and his latest piece Alya, which has never been exhibited before.
The Marbella based artist commented that he was, “delighted with exhibiting in such a stunning location and receiving the reaction of the public to his works”. He added, “it isn’t usual for me to exhibit here, I normally hold most exhibitions in major art centres such as Paris and London, but I am so happy to be here, speaking to people and seeing how they relate to my pieces.”
Nimrod Messeg was born in Israel in 1970 and is the son of the famous Israeli painter Aharon Messeg and the poet Sabina Messeg. Nimrod began sculpting from an early age in his father’s workshop and has developed his own unique and eclectic style. After travelling around the world for many years, Nimrod settled in Marbella in 1999. He has developed his own artisan method of sculpting with iron. He uses traditional forging techniques to create
textures, shapes and effects which transform the metal into something beautiful, light and soft.
The exhibition runs until the 21 st of November and entrance is free.
