Jordi Díez Fernández

1966, Valladolid (Spain)

With a Suma Cum Laude degree in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, in 1989 the sculptor Jordi Díez opened his first workshop in Fresnedillas de la Oliva (Madrid).

There, isolated for three years, he shaped the sculptural concept of his work. The figurative expression, especially the human figure, is the axis on which his work turns. In the different stages of his work, he emphasises the use of different materials and their handling: stone, iron, wood and terracotta.

For Jordi Díez, these materials are the prelude to working exclusively with stainless steel, a metal that provides luminosity, among many other qualities, and that turns his creations into an artistic novelty, admired by experts in figurative and contemporary art.

For the artist, the beauty of the different materials already contains in itself its own discourse that enhances expression.

His work is found in museums, temples, public spaces and private collections around the world. He is currently immersed in sculpture projects in San Francisco, Barcelona, ​​Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan, where he attended as a guest artist at the A.R.T., Art Revolution Taipei 2015. He is considered one of the Spanish sculptors with the greatest international projection.

He currently lives and works in Centelles (Barcelona).

Previous work

Jordi Díez, example of mastery and technical demand

His extensive knowledge of technique, proportion and the human body; the understanding of him by the classics and Michelangelo in particular; and his previous works with more traditional materials such as wood, iron, stone, terracotta or bronze, converge in the most recent work of the Spanish sculptor.
