Descripción del Artista

Rafael Barrios was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and raised in Venezuela. He lives between Miami, Paris and Caracas. During an artistic career of almost 40 years, Barrios has participated in over 100 solo and group exhibitions in some of the most important art centers in the United States, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. His distinctive works are found in prominent museum and institutional collections such, as the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto; the Sofía Imber Contemporary Art Museum and the Galeria de Arte Nacional, both in Caracas, Venezuela. His sculptures are also found in important private collections such as Gustavo and Patricia Cisneros, King Juan Carlos of Spain and Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis of Germany. Barrios? diverse work includes the creation of large-scale sculptures, many destined for public spaces. He models virtual volume to monumental dimensions in these urban contexts, transforming and magnifying forms in space into a new visual experience. He has received numerous commissions for works to be integrated into important urban spaces such as Coca-Cola International Headquarters in New York; Philippe Stark?s Murano Grande building and the Sunny Isles Park in Miami, Florida; Fontanilla Park in Palos de la Frontera, Spain; the Universidad de los Andes, Merida, Venezuela; the headquarters of Procter & Gamble, CorpBanca, Banco Mercantil and the Instituto de Estudios Avanzados, Universidad Simon Bolivar, all in Caracas, Venezuela.
