JOSE MARGULIS

Jose Margulis is a Venezuelan artist based in Caracas. His artwork is the result of an intrinsic connection between 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional planes, working with sculpture in parallel with photography. Margulis began producing acrylic 3D sculptures and compositions made from different types of colorful plastic sheets, affixing them onto surfaces, other times as free standing structures or traditional fixtures on a wall. As most Venezuelan artists from his generation, Margulis was raised with Geometric abstractionism and Kinetic art, influenced early on by his encounters with the works of Venezuelan kinetic artist Jesús Soto and Naum Gabo. In 2016, Margulis won Dubai International Emerging Artist Award. His works are constantly being exhibited in galleries throughout South America and the United States.
