After the success of the “Sociocultural” exhibition, which took place at the Palma headquarters of the Barceló Foundation last September on the occasion of the Nit de l’Art 2017, the artist Gastón Luciano Bonanno wanted to show his gratitude through the donation of the work “Euclídeo”.
As the name suggests, the work is inspired by the work of the Greek mathematician and geometer Euclides (ca. 325 BC – 265 BC), known as “The Father of Geometry”. It is a work of 130 cm. created from cold forged iron, concrete, and three-layer paint.
Bonanno began to work in metal sculpture at the young age of 14 as a good descendant of a family of artisans. However, it was in Spain where he began his career as an artist, working since 2009 in the technique called “cold forging”, and since 2012 he has evolved with his experiments with metal, mixing gravity and balance in his oscillating sculptures such as the case of “Euclídeo”, a work that becomes part of the artistic heritage of the Foundation.
