the Artzept design award represents a huge opportunity for creative individuals to showcase their talents and contribute to the development of the art and design industries.

Monolith light sculpture’s body is made in several phases. Constructive parts of the sculpture are shaped with stainless steel wires and profiles, welded, chrome-plated, or plasticized, depending on the agreement. After this first phase of skeleton making, we start to work with UV-resistant acrylic glass or polycarbonate. The sculpture is built by joining and bending previously prepared plastic segments.

The combination of colors and shapes comes to the fore making this technique alive and always different.
Due to the work in layers and the use of light, the sculpture has two faces. One is when the light is off, and then we only see one look, texture, and color on the very surface of the sculpture. When the light comes on, you get a broader picture of the form, its depth, overlaps, color mixing, etc.

The stainless steel base is mounted on a concrete foundation. There is also an option for this sculpture to be solar-powered, in both cases, it has an LED lighting system inside.

Art guides us through time, from the moment when we are crushed by an immense and dominating Nature, to that moment of serenity when we have learned to understand her and work in harmony with her laws… the history of civilization, as also the history of the individual.

Le Corbusier

The bull is a complex figure of symbolism. At once masculine, strong, and sturdy, a figure of anger and aggression, too often is the victim. 

Traditionally, the bull symbolizes stamina, fertility, and hard work. Today, it’s often killed in a show of strength, surrounded in the act of ritual, tamed, and reduced of power by a superior man.

With this bull sculpture, I didn’t want to show just the raw side but rather a movement, feelings, and tension, a step into the unpredictable world. A bull is a character out of appropriate social clichés. Symbol of fire and Earth. A hero for a cause greater than himself. A simple representation of nature as a divine, gentle, powerful, and unpredictable creator of things.
