“Max Leiva shows us that sculpture can merge refinement and expressiveness, creative force and contrast, elegance in its form and the sincerity of his creator. In each one of his pieces he captures a restless imagination, elaborating visual poems conceived to re-enchant our dreams, dreams in a world where all is to be only tenderness and voluptuousness.”
Noël Coret

 

BOOK 2020


In Max Leiva, Challenge and Plenitude. Recent work, Lupina Lara Elizondo displays Leiva’s most recent artistic repertoire. The author reveals how “universal personages interact in the artist’s mises-en-scène, in assemblies of clay or bronze. The art that Max Leiva shows us with his powerful aesthetics and unique voice, is the grand scenario of life”.

ABOUT THE ARTIST


“I’m fascinated by the human essence, our very condition, our fragility and behavior in society”
Max Leiva, 2019

Max Leiva (1966) is a contemporary Guatemalan artist known for his expressive figurative sculptures. His style is informed by his travels around the world, from Switzerland to Bangkok, where he studied for two years. His artistic path materializes in the figurative or the abstract, claiming not only his roots from the Mayan culture of Central America, but also his experiences traveling the world.
