The sculptor and engraver Barcelona Jaume Plensa Suñé is considered one of the greatest Spanish artists with national and international relevance of our time. He studied at the Llotja and the College of Fine Arts of Sant Jordi in Barcelona, and was recently awarded the title of Doctor Honoris Causa by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Plensa has received, among other awards, the National Prize of Plastic Arts and the National Graphic Arts Award in 2012 and in 2013, the Velázquez Visual Arts Prize.

Jaume Plensa held his first exhibition in Barcelona in 1980, followed by numerous solo and group exhibitions worldwide, among which the retrospective held at the National Art Museum Reina Sofia in 2000 or Silent Noise, held in Chicago in collaboration with the SEACEX; likewise, he has produced numerous commissions for large public sculptures or co-created the sets for operas and theatrical creations with La Fura dels Baus.

The work of Jaume Plensa has as its central axis the dimension of man and his relationship with the environment, questioning often the role of art in society and the position of the artist, which combines opposites (tangible and intangible, present and absence, reason and spirit) in order to arouse emotions in the visitor, appealing to memory and sensory factors, the viewer must interact with the pieces, touching them, enter them, walk with them.

How could it be otherwise in an artist of his quality and international prestige, his work is exhibited in major museums and collections around the world. A significant part of production corresponds to that of Plensa public sculpture; in this area have works in Spain, France, Japan, UK, Korea, Germany, Canada, United States, etc. To give just one example, "The Crown Fountain" sculpture made in 2004 for the Millennium Park in Chicago (USA), is one of its largest projects, and without doubt one of the brightest. In 2014, the Royal Mint was awarded the Tomás Francisco Prieto Award in its 25th edition.
