Hailing from Bilbao, Spain, Jesús Hilera is a seasoned sculptor who graduated with honours from the Escuela de Artes y Oficios in the North West region of Spain.
Having had much experience in using a variety of carving mediums for his art, he excelled in working with materials like natural wood, stone and marble. Throughout his career, Jesús had the privilege to be mentored by some of the most influential and skilled masters in this craft, particularly when it came to the beautiful religious imagery that he does so well.
Thanks to hard work, patience and his natural talent, Jesús has mastered a plethora of techniques and classic methodologies while experimenting and mixing different materials. His unique creativity has allowed each piece created to transform into a work of art.
When creating a piece, Jesús gives much thought to each piece while allowing their subtle beauty to be the catalyst to the interpretation of the viewer. This allows each creation to have its own significant meaning.
Jesús Hilera has displayed and exhibited in galleries across Europe, in many private collections around the globe, and now here: at Art! Vancouver.
