Amadeo Gabino was a Spanish painter, sculptor and engraver. His artistic work seen from constructivist tendencies: geometry and architectural strength.
Between 1958 and 1960, Gabino worked in Germany, a period during which he began to move away from a figurative work to develop his characteristic constructivist work.
Gabino trained at the San Carlos School of Art in Valencia and in the studio of his sculptor father. He finished his studies in Rome, Milan, Paris, Hamburg. In New York, he received a grant from the Ford Foundation where he met Archipenko, Lipchitz and Caldera.
His sculptures incorporate superimposed silver, golden metal plates cut in concentric circles. He uses iron, steel, aluminum, copper, often combining two materials to play with textures and shine.
His graphic work incorporates collages, embossings, overlays of colored bands that remind us of the spirit of his work as a sculptor.
During his long career, Gabino cultivated with great dedication his work both in drawing, as in engraving, monotype and collage.
