Carlos Mata is a Spanish sculptor, born in 1949 in Palma de Mallorca and died in July 2008. He studied at the Academy of Art in Barcelona (Academia de Arte de Barcelona) and at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris . He lived and worked in these two cities.
Influenced by his Mediterranean origins, he was an animal sculptor. The artist is inspired by his childhood memories, landscapes and Spanish lands. He is interested in prehistoric arts. His cast iron bronzes exploit the symbolism of the animal by mixing grace and modernity. His most famous works are his horses and his bulls. The patina of his works and his forms, dark profiles reduced to their essential outlines, characterize him.
Carlos Mata is an internationally renowned artist. His works continue to be exhibited in art fairs, public and private collections in Europe, South America and the United States, as well as in our galleries in Saint Ouen.
