Henri Iglesis

BIOGRAPHY

 

Henri Iglesis is a contemporary artist of Catalan origin, inventor of the blown sheet process ...

He was born in 1964 in Perpignan, his grandfather was a blacksmith and his father, a turner-toolmaker.

In 2008, this boilermaker became a sculptor, by the surprising invention of a process which became his trademark: blown sheet metal.

 

The figure of his father, an adjuster, was certainly decisive in the artistic development of the young boy. Henri Iglesis spent his childhood in the workshop of this craftsman whom he loved and admired fervently. "Do not touch anything, look and you will learn" he said to him softly ... From then on, it is easier to understand Henri's passion for manual work and metals, which he will rub shoulders with all his life and which he will draw his art.
