Alvaro De Jesus was born in Caracas in 1983. He studied engineering in Caracas and Bordeaux and obtained a degree in Industrial Engineering from Universidad Católica Andrés Bello and later a masters degree in IESA. As an engineering student he was particularly interested in theoretical physics and mathematics. In France he further advanced his knowledge of production techniques at L’Ecole National Superior des Arts et Métiers. He began his artistic career by investigating the relationship between art and science, his two passions, and found a largely overlook subject that would become the center of his work. Since 2013 he started doing thorough research on the subject by advancing his knowledge on both fields, and particularly drawing attention to the subject of morality and how art and science work together in shaping our ethics. He currently works at the LFA studio in Miami alongside world-renowned artists. The artist draws inspiration from kinetic artists and reinterprets the relevance of the movement as metaphor of the relationship between art and science.

The Venezuelan sculptor Rafael Fuentes was born in 1979 in Valencia, Venezuela; He graduated from UJAP with a Bachelors Degree in Business. Growing up surrounded by art, as his father and late grandmother were painters, from a very early age he’s been attracted by art, colors, geometry and by how different geometric shapes give way to figures that resemble nature and everyday objects. At the age of 11 he started making art pieces with paper and cardstock and hasn’t stopped ever since. In 2004 he began working with sculptural techniques for creating three-dimensional forms from two-dimensional patterns. The artist’s current studies are based on these techniques. Rafael currently resides in Miami, Florida.

Later on, he went back to Venezuela and established himself in the city of Barquisimeto where he worked on many interesting architectural projects for 17 years, culminating in every architect’s dream: designing and building his own home. With a keen for arts as well, he took interest in sculpture, after fashioning a pair of earrings for his youngest daughter in 1997. This paved the way to a deeper exploration of more sophisticated proposals, which led him to exhibit his sculptures in several Ibero-American Art Fairs curated by Magda Arria from Graphic Gallery. His work has been shown in Caracas, Barquisimeto, Tokyo, Sofia, Mallorca, Lewis, Hoboken, Hudson City and Miami.
