Born in 1964 in Perpignan, Henri Iglesis is a contemporary artist of Catalan origin. In 1981, he graduated with a double degree in sculpture, specialising in “metalwork” and “welding”. In 2008, he invented a process that became his trademark: “sheet blown”. Iglesis’s copyrighted technique is registered as a process shaping of injecting air in a welded sheet metal part first.
The majority of his works are sculptures shaped by inflation. It is through this unique technology that extends the visionary creativity of the artist, which allowed his imagination and his mischievous humour to take concrete form. His works are characterised by visual lightness, combining the weight of the metal patina to the flexibility of the air; lightness of a colourful and carefree dream world.
