Barcelona-based artist David Moreno pairs sketching with sculpture to create inventive installations that play with space and experiment with dimensionality. He describes his artistic process as “trying to draw sculptures”—an approach that is particularly apparent in his sketch-like, architecture-inspired series of avant-garde works.
Each piece is first conceptualized as a line drawing composed of quick strokes and seemingly out-of-control contours. Moreno then uses the raw drawing to render a three-dimensional interpretation of the design. He employs steel rods, piano wire (strong steel cables used as piano strings), and paint to compose each piece. Each structure is shaped using a cross-hatch technique, which suggests pencil-produced shading and a sense of depth through a range of tones.
