Ferrán Aguiló (Palma de Mallorca, 1957) is a Mallorcan artist with dexterity and passion. A large retrospective exhibition of his sculpted animals, plants and organic forms is currently on display at the Casal Solleric in Palma’s Passeig des Born (until November 28th). The artist first made headlines in 1986 when he won the second prize in the II Concurs d’Esculpture in Palma and in 1987 when he participated in an exhibition in Palma’s Parc de la Mar showing an impressively large Arc de Triomphe which was demolished at the end of the exhibition. In 1988, Aguiló had his first solo exhibition in a Palma gallery, and in 1998, his first international exhibition in Berlin. He is an artist to watch.
Ferrán Aguiló’s work at the Casal Solleric is displayed thoughtfully and to good effect with, at times, surprising poetic overtones. The Casal itself is beautiful and unique and well worth a visit, even without the excuse of an art exhibition.
