Jorge Marín (Mexico, 1963) is one of the greatest exponents of figurative contemporary art in Mexico. His career has been multifaceted, which has allowed him to cover different disciplines and work with different materials, such as ceramics and resin, however after a long and meticulous search, he chose to use bronze as a distinctive sign, which was ideal so that the hands and feet of his characters, as well as the textures of feathers, veins and fabrics, acquired the perfection of living matter.

In the public space, it has generated an unprecedented dialogue between the work of art and the viewer, who complicit in a spontaneous and playful game, appropriates a pair of wings and coexists with his fantastic characters.
