Agustín de Andino

"Monumental Sculpture (Vanitas)" (2000)


de Andino, Agustin (San Juan, P.R., 1952). Ceramist and sculptor. He has been pottery and sculpture instructor at The Art Students’ League of San Juan, Puerto Rico (1977-78), ceramics and sculpture teacher at Inter American University of San Germán, Puerto Rico (1979-81) and Assistant Reader in ceramics and Art History at the Kingsborough's School of Brooklyn, New York (1981). His work originates from pieces based on vases and dishes from traditional formats of pottery, then he takes the nearest vertical format closest to the sculpture, of irregular and geometric forms. In terms of color, his works are dominated by the use of whites and ochres remaining always, a moderate expressionism.
