Figura Humana by Eduardo Chillida. We at Stardust feel incredibly fortunate to bring these fine Eduardo Chillida rugs to the market. Equally stunning on the floor or on the wall. Figura Humana was designed by leading abstract artist Eduardo Chillida in 1949. This exceptional art piece, available from modern design purveyor Stardust, is marked by the contrast between the solidity of the human form and the openness of the design. Figura Humana is a fine example of Eduardo Chillida's philisophy; that is that the negative and the positive space which the work inhabits, and which the work defines, is really important. With Figura Humana, Eduardo Chillida sought and succeeded in visualizing what you do not see. Figura Humana's interaction with its surrounding is fundamental to Chillida's artistic vision.
Eduardo Chillida, born in 1924, is ranked among the most acclaimed sculptors of the second half of the 20th century. Eduardo Chillida spent the early years of his artistic career in Paris, where Ancient Greek sculpture as well as the works of avant-garde masters like Gaston Lachaise, Le Corbusier and Picasso really influenced his work. Chillida is regarded as a vanguard among his contemporaries for the dialog he created between monumental works and their surrounding spaces. His work is characterized by elemental forms, pared down to satisfy his essentially ascetic vision.
