Max Leiva is a Guatemalan sculptor whose work focuses mostly on the figure. His style is informed by his tavels around the world, from Switzerland to Bangkok, where he lived for two years. This life experience allows Leiva to embrace a wide visual field in converging world cultures.
The integration of sculpture into architecture has always intrigued me. Sculptors have historically found ways to carve or mold various building materials into incredible works of art that in many ways define a culture. Living in the clay rich Carolinas, USA provides plenty of soil suitable for brick making and brick sculpture.
