About Manel Vidal

Manuel Vidal was born in 1953 in Spain. Already as a child, the artist showed a great interest in sculptural work and sculpture. However, as he could not count on family support, he applied his artistic skills in the textile industry. When in 1981, the art school "Escuela de Artes y Oficios" was founded in his hometown of La Pobla de Claramunt, he took over the position of the headmaster there. After a few years, he gave up this position in order to devote himself entirely to his sculptural work.

He created sculptures that showed a clear tendency towards the figurative in dynamic – almost dance-like movement. In his thematic world, the human is the centre of a constantly renewing creation. Like the great masters of Greek antiquity, he is always in search of the truth and the origin of human existence. He breaks up the primary rock and shapes it into sculptures of unique beauty and expressiveness.
