Adrián Villar Rojas

Born in 1980, in Rosario (Argentina)

Lives and works in Rosario (Argentina)

Drawing from science-fiction, comic strips, grunge and classical culture, Adrián Villar Rojas creates gigantic sculptures and installations featuring the remains of a hybrid world.

As if fossilised in clay, his works take natural, human and robotic forms, bringing prehistory into contact with futurism. Born in 1980, Villar Rojas represented Argentina at the 2011 Venice Biennale.
