Recognized as one of the leading sculptors of Costa Rica, José Sancho pursues a broad range of themes in his works, yet nature is always the most essential starting point. His unique conceptual style constitutes a fine example of a dialogue that can be established between what is local and global, particular and universal.
Also influenced by the Hispanic and pre-Colombian art of the land into which he was born and presenting this influence with new readings, Sancho masterfully uses different media: wood, granite, marble, bronze, iron plates, and found objects allow the artist to recreate the animal forms and the infinite representations of femininity.
