Born in 1955 in Barcelona, Jaume is an internationally acclaimed sculptor. The culture, streets and architecture of the Catalan capital have been a constant source of inspiration. He is best known for spectacular, figurative sculptures – often for public settings. He works in steel, glass, marble, wood, stone and light. Major projects include his ‘Crown Fountain’ in Chicago’s Millennium Park and ‘Dream’, a large scale sculpture near Liverpool. Made in luminescent white marble and concrete, the face of a young girl with her eyes closed is at odds with the industrial surroundings. In 2015 Jaume was commissioned to create sculptures for San Giorgio Maggiore at the Venice Biennale.
