Artist of the moment……..Mauro Corda

 

 

Mauro Corda is a fantastic sculptor born in Lourdes, France the year 1960. Corda enjoys trying to capture human emotion in the figure when facing stressful and intense situations.

Corda attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in both Reims and Paris.

Corda’s work is unique as a sculptor for what he adds to his work for a patina. The artist often uses chrome, gold and silver leaf, and silver in his sculptures. The artist will often recreate the same subject matter in different materials to try and express a different emotion.

In this clip a montage of works by Mauro Corda:

Price range information: Works range from $10,000 for works in graphite to $80,000 for a bronze or aluminum work.

Corda has been based out of Paris, France for nearly three decades.

Below we view an exhibition for the artist that took place in Monaco. At the end of the clip more of his surrealist work such as animal creatures are shown:

The artist in me would like to see what Corda would come up with for a modern design for the Rolls Royce female figure. Corda’s work is very reminiscent of the Art Deco period.
