Magical statues coming out of the garbage dump

Daniel Brunner It changes countries with the ease of you and me changing channels. This unclassifiable artist has placed his spear in South Africa, Costa Rica, the United Kingdom, and now Spain, where it splits between Llucmajor and Marbella to weld magical statues. He is nicknamed the son of interculturalism (his mother is Peruvian and his father is Austrian from his native country). “heavy metal magic man” Given her ability to ‘make beauty out of the dirt’ – quoting Oscar Wilde. He hasn’t opened an exhibition in Mallorca yet, but he knows it’s only a matter of time.

He hopes to “travel the world” in the future. move my art», “I don’t like to plan what I’m doing”, but he admits. Finally, a piece of advice: “Buy my art now, while it’s still affordable. Investing in art is investing in the future,” he says, going back and forth between laughter.
