The great Eduardo Chillida was a Spanish sculptor born in San Sebastián in 1924. A sculptor who stood out especially for his works in concrete and iron. In addition he was clearly influenced by Pablo Picasso and Julio González Pellicer.
Finding nowadays some of his works in parks and public spaces is a privilege that we can enjoy. For example, his well-known and emblematic Peine de los Vientos in San Sebastián. But we can also enjoy many of his works in private places and even acquire reinterpretations of his best works in art galleries like ours. Because at Buysculpture we have a large number of abstract works.
Main artworks of Eduardo Chillida
Perhaps the first work that comes to mind when we hear the name of Eduardo Chillida is the aforementioned Peine de los Vientos de San Sebastián. Undoubtedly a magnificent work of art. But we must also say that the artist from San Sebastian created a great Number of pieces that also deserve special mention.
His early works focused mainly on human torsos, with a base in the archaic Greek sculpture. Although in all of them it was already seen how Chillida worried about the inner form. In the same way we can see common to all his works monumentality, since the sculptor tried to play with the volumes and the mass of the materials used.
Over time he started to tend towards the abstract. And after his job at a forge, in 1951, he began to specialise in the iron. A craft he dominated venturing deep into the interpretation of the open spaces, fleeing the imitations and looking for the innovation.
In each of his works he solves a spatial problem. Such as his best known works such as “Funeral stones” (Ilarriak), Music of the Spheres, Eco (Oyarak) and Sound Spaces, among others.
His works for the exterior are integrated with each other as if they were part of the same. Something thatwe can see in “El peine de los vientos”.
We can find relaxing sculptures that lead us to meditation thanks to this great Spanish author. Chillida died in August 2002 as a result of the Alzheimer.
