Along with the practical and technical knowledge, taking classes and courses in drawing and sculpture in various international cultural centers.

Working on stainless steel, he began with works of small size, their ingenuity, curiosity, talent and creativity, make that in his career he matures his style and develop larger sculptures.

The approach of the prestigious plastic artist Fernando Galdamez, who work 20 years, along with Pablo Picasso and the Ruso Artist, in Paris, gives to Rafa Ferre a new technique in his sculptures, including works by larger sizes, more proficiently in their works, look and feel the work of the steel, its imperfections, its veins, that they are melting, writhing.

His works are more oriented to the Urban Art, in contact with the people, outdoors,in parks, buildings.

The handling , with other materials like glass and wood and the stones, looking for a style , abstract, surreal, three-dimensional , giving it a stronger energy ,beauty and harmony.

Rafa has many contacts abroad, they led him to attend the European market but not in the Argentine market.

He is working to enter in the North American market, as it is a more open, broad market to the accepting and applying large works, Town Planning for buildings, parks, hotels.

Some words

My web. page designer asked me to define my art in a single word, a hard thing to do. My art is urban but not decorative.

I look a new style of modernism, surreal stainless steel pieces with a personal interior power.

If I would have to choose only one word to define my art, it would be “space”.

If I would have how to summarize the way I feel or see art, it would be beyond human sense. My inspiration is not limited to earthly concepts. By space I mean going beyond the ordinary.

I am looking to define all what you cannot see with your eyes.

Covering not only planets, galaxies, stars but also the way we feel the sensation of our universe, comprising our world, our limitations and every day struggles. I look to represent our origin and our end, something not is from this world but from space.
