Eduardo Castrillo’s sculptures attract anyone who wants something new. This great sculptor has created his own brand of constructivism in his art; his innovations resulted in works with a contemporary feel. His monumental sculptures are also installed in various places in the country, and he left behind a body of work spanning more than four decades. Castrillo took humanistic, spiritual, and philosophical themes and translated them into his pieces that explore human aspirations and spiritual redemption. This sculpture, for instance, beautifully captures the enthusiasm for growth. This is one of his metallic works that show how he created with a pioneering, progressive spirit and without fear. Starting as a jewelry designer for the famed Estrella del Norte in 1964, Castrillo mastered the use of various materials for his unique works.
