Tropicalisimo -Flexible Rigids- painted wood sculptural wall, parametric design



HUGO G. URRUTIA B. 1974, Mexico Hugo G. Urrutia is a multidisciplinary artist-designer, interested in the cross-pollination between art and architecture. His artwork challenges the notion of what constitutes a piece of art. A graduate and active member of the Architectural Association in the United Kingdom, Urrutia’s work creates a distinct spatiality located at the interstice of art and architecture. His work explores and uses technology for design and fabrication, with a sensitive and conscious reminder of the creativity of human endeavor. Urrutia graduated from the Architectural Association in 2013, earning a Master of Architecture in the Design & Make programme. In 2000, he graduated from Texas Tech University, with a Bachelor of Architecture and Design and received the 2000 Outstanding Thesis Award. In 2004, he founded Decorazon Gallery in Dallas’ Bishop Arts District where he curated and exhibited numerous art exhibitions for national and international artists. His personal artwork has been exhibited worldwide. Urrutia is interested in conveying a strong concept and exploring different mediums by presenting his message in a very indirect format, while creating visual simulation for the viewer. His latest series titled Flexible Rigids, explores sculptural forms that simulate smooth harmonic movements of a flexible surface, initiating the process from a “rigid “surface.

Then I challenge myself to try to mimic these noble forms…This series derives from repetitiveness of a simple component like the triangle. As a whole, it produces a sort of wavy effect in which I can play with the shades and shadows. By cutting a simple rigid coloured plane in a precise way, my “canvas” becomes sculptural and organic...”
