About

Jose Maria Arellano (b.1977) is a Miami based sculptor who contrives interactive visual semblances from museum board and xylene-based acrylic paint. Arellano, a creative since a young age and inspired by the works of Patrick Hughes, became an artist in 2013. In 2016, he ended his career as a rowing instructor and went full-time with his art. Since then, his sculptures have been exhibited at Art Paris, Art Miami, Art Wynwood, Scope Miami/New York, Art Palm Beach, Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary and at the Lelia Mordoch Gallery in Miami and Paris. His optical-kinetic wall sculptures are formulaically skewed and precisely crafted to produce a virtual reality experience uniquely dependent on the perspective and movement of the viewer. They are experiments in optics, perception and interpretation
