I'm a sculptor exploring the sensuality of volumetry.”
Crixo Aponte is a Venezuelan sculptor and architect born in Caracas in 1973, where at an early age studied drawing, painting, photography and color. After achieving his degree in architecture, Crixo ventured to France, Italy and Spain where he practiced while dedicating himself to studying and experimenting with different forms of sculpting. Upon his return to Venezuela, he knew that it was his true passion.
“My desire is to create urban spaces with monumental pieces. I want to provide these spaces with a work that can serve as an urban icon, a point of reference and a meeting place in order to interactively integrate sculptures with the context of the urban plot”.
“I create unique pieces and experiences for public, private and corporate spaces, be it a sculpture on a monumental scale or a piece for a small and intimate space. My work is about creating places, capturing the imagination and fostering a moment of creative contemplation between the viewer, the environment and the sculpture.”
