about Manuel Mediavilla
The artist Manuel Mediavilla holds a degree in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, specialising in sculpture. The sculptor's work revolves around three recurring elements: the swimmer, alone or accompanied by other swimmers, elements or animals.
The swimmer is represented in an artificial environment, with planes and surfaces subjected to a strict geometric stylisation that have a double function: structural and allusive. The protagonist of the space is water, which is represented or absent in the compositions where the swimmers are reflected and form part of it.
