Atleta Griego.

A sculpture created in corten steel by artist Pablo Juarros, from Huarte (Navarre). It is an abstract work which aims to portray the strength and tension contained within an athlete just before the start of a race. The work is anchored to the ground by a simple iron plate. The forms of the sculpture are extremely stylised and schematised, shunning simple anatomical references. In formal terms, the work exhibits a great simplicity of composition. Pablo Juarros started his artistic education at the workshop of Patxi Buldáin, before going on to Arteleku in San Sebastian. Pablo is an ever-investigating artist, continually seeking new approaches, yet obliged to combine his creative work with other jobs. His work is an ongoing investigation into nonrigid forms, with emphasis on curves, seeking twisted shapeswhich invite the beholder to travel along them, to go into the spaces. His principal obsession appears to be with movement, the dynamism contained within sculpture.
