BIOGRAPHY – Lluís Jordà

Born in Barcelona where he studied art and started work, Lluis Jorda is a sculptor well rooted in the artistic traditions of his Mediterranean motherland. He shows in his sculptures a great sensibility and his romantic character and by following the steps of the great Catalan sculptors of the XIX and XX Centuries and, at the same time, incorporating the modern art tendencies he succeeds in creating fine works of both classical and contemporary characteristics.

He started studying art, specially drawing and painting, at the Arts and Crafts School of Barcelona, afterwards at the, in the sixties, reknowned Academia Baixas. Everything seemed to point out to a successful artistic career in that direction… but there was a fracture. The need to see new horizons made him go abroad, to Switzerland, France and Germany, where he stayed for several years. After his marriage he began remembering his origins, his roots, Barcelona, and he came back to the Fatherland.
He started then a new direction and began attending the workshop of the sculptor Guerau Calabia, in Mataró, where he learned all the secret techniques of sculpture which he needed to carry out his new ideas and conceptions.

He has presented his works in Barcelona, Madrid, France, etc. And the reaction to his exhibitions was very positive. Many of his works are now in different private collections throughout Europe, Asia and America.

Lluis Jorda has now withdrawn from the daily toll at the workshop to have more time for the creative aspects of his art, to develope new models and patinations.A few years ago his son Jordi took over the workshop where the creative ideas of his father are being developed and transformed in beatiful works of art.

We are sure that we can still hope for many beautiful and interesting sculptures from Lluis Jordà…¡ This site shows many of the sculptures created by him, mostly in cold cast bronze. Also shown are some models cast by the traditional (and more expensive), lost wax method. Details of each model are given in the GALLERY .
