VETUSART, San Sebastian
Maximilian Pelzmann was born in Dublin, Ireland.
Part of his creative philosophy is based on assertions that:
“Artwork within our immediate environment can deeply enrich our lives. As it can positively demonstrate who we are as a society and how our cultural identity has evolved.”
“Throughout my creative process I consolidate inspiration from shapes, colours and images from within our organic and non-organic past and present, while also obtaining influence from our constantly developing technological and engineered world.”
“My objective and purpose is to create, exhibit and share artwork that interprets and demonstrates the visually and permanent metaphors hidden behind our experiences which can connect our lives.”
It has been noted by art critics that Pelzmann’s sculptures follow the parameters and paradigms of Henry Moore and Jean Arp, as well as the art and humanized nature of the Neo—Concrete movement and Anglo-Saxon technological repertoires.
His artwork and sculptures are exhibited internationally and have given millions of viewing public an opportunity to physically interplay with some of his Public Artworks, highlighting Pelzmann’s belief that sometime artwork should be interacted with instead of the traditionally held belief that artwork should only be seen and not touched.
Maximilian Pelzmann works out of his two art studios at MANA CONTENPORARY in the New York City Area and also in the Basque Region of Northern Spain near San Sebastian.
