Better known for his works of public art, Jaume Plensa has reinterpreted human heads and bodies in his own style while primarily addressing the theme of community. He mentions that while the act of making creative artworks is mystic and fantastic, what is really important is to do something continuously without paying too much attention to any of the mistakes that might come about. He says that it is interesting to discover chances in mistakes and that it is important to be in continuous pursuit of something.
Born in Barcelona, Spain in 1955, Jaume Plensa has established a solid reputation not only as a Spanish artist but also as an international artist of public art with his pieces set in Berlin, Spain, France, Singapore, the UK, and the US. His first solo exhibition took place in Barcelona in 1980. His showpieces include The Crown Fountain at Millennium Park in Chicago, Echo at Madison Square in New York City, Normade in Iowa, and The Alchemist at MIT.
