★ Best Prints Award at Estampa 2006 - International Exhibition of Graphic Works, Madrid < /span>

Andrés Alcántara, an exponent of young Spanish sculpture, is in the lineage of master Brancusi, the first of the moderns who established the grammar of a new purification, poetic and plastic, inspired by the primitives. African sculpture, which was also a reference for Picasso, reflects the magic of its forms and rituals in Alcántara's work in a new formulation of a post-cubist grammar that is enriched with the halo of an inaugural, surrealizing mystery, recognized by poets such as Cruzeiro Seixas or Mário Cesariny. The sculptor-poet not only reconnects the lost link with the original sources of the archetypes, he gives form in three dimensions to the contents of an ancestral imagination. In 2006, Alcántara's works, which we present today, inspired by the mythical figure of the dragon, received the prize for the best engraving at Estampa. These works were created by the competent technicians of the CPS studio, in three variants using metal plates engraved by the renowned artist, which clearly reveal his talent and skill as a sculptor.
