Jaime Pitarch is an artist from Spain and he is known for giving a wonderful twist to all his works. Located in Barcelona, he has been transforming everyday objects since years, such as creating a contemporary sculpture from your chair or wire coat hanger!
He transforms he objects and asks viewers to evaluate their functions and their relations to it on a daily basis. With his work, he aims to help people identify structures that we were not able to identify due to our constant usage and practices. The artist is represented by The Spencer Brownstone Gallery located in New York and they opine that only when the functionality of an object is removed, people will see it in a different way and that is precisely what Jaime does with his work.
The works of Jaime look poetic, as it shows us things we have been seeing daily in new light. When he transforms the objects, they are not functional anymore, but are definitely worth admiring. Based on the reassembled puzzle pieces, you will start reconsidering the materials you use every day! Scroll down to look at the wonderful sculptures of Jaime.
