Raúl de Nieves’ public sculpture takes us on a journey through ancient mythology inspired by the Roman origins of Bvlgari.
Raúl de Nieves made a name for himself treating modest materials with meticulous attention and “turning the mundane into the fantastical,” according to the Whitney Biennial. His expansive faux stained-glass window, beaded sculptures and embellished shoes were among the 2017 exhibition’s most acclaimed works. The 35-year-old Mexican artist is reaching for the brass ring during Miami Art Week with his satellite exhibition, a public sculpture entitled When I Look Into Your Eyes I See The Sun (2018), presented by Bvlgari in collaboration with Art Production Fund.
Both the artist and jeweler see and share beauty through color with a powerful and daring energy. de Nieves’ striking work sits in the hotel’s luminous Cathedral entrance, taking viewers on a journey through ancient mythology inspired by the Roman origins of Bvlgari while representing the cycle of life, metamorphosis and legends in
the form of a carousel.
