Nimrod Messeg is Iron Man. The Israeli-born, Spainbased artist is one of the world’s most skilled and sought-after sculptors in iron. See his work in our Mixed Sculpture Exhibition at the gallery.
Nimrod Messeg began his creative life at a very young age sculpting in his father’s workshop. Over the years he developed an eclectic and unique style greatly sought after both in Spain and internationally.
After travelling all over the world for many years Nimrod finally settled in Marbella in 1999, setting up his own business creating bespoke architectural furniture.
His pieces are crafted artistically solely from wrought iron and are can be found in numerous exclusive properties in and around Marbella. Following the success of Messeg Design, Nimrod turned his focus to his true love of artistic sculpture, developing his personal and direct artisan method of sculpting iron.
Nimrod Messeg uses ancient forging techniques, welding, power hammering, a plasma torch and other tools which enable him to create textures, shapes and effects that give his sculptures a unique style and appearance. These methods enable him to take a cold and brutal material like metal and transform it into something beautiful, gentle, light, curvaceous… soft even.
“During the sculpting process the element of fire is my primary tool. This powerful force of creation provides me with a deep connection to nature and life itself.
The observation of burning flames, sparks and galactic activity draws me to the extraordinary, almost celestial dimension of this work with its potential for fantasy and escape. The light, heat and fire energy permit me to give birth to an entirely new entity.
Looking at the finished piece of art I can see it in its entirety; from its humble metal beginnings through the creative process and into new and diverse textures, forms and surfaces. Each sculpture gradually takes on a life of its own and, using me as its tool, develops its own personality.”
