FELICIANO BEJAR "MAJISCOPE" SCULPTURE
Over the last two years, Feliciano Bejar (1920-2007) has been 'rediscovered' in America.
We can easily credit Rago Auctioneers, one of the top auction houses in the world dedicated to 20th century art and design.
Bejar, who died in 2007, was known in Latin America as innovative painter and sculptor.
His works can be found in the collections of the Museo de Arte Moderno (Mexico City) and the Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo.
As a self-taught artist he is known for his signature sculptures composed of car-parts and other industrial materials crowned with glass inserts with optical effects. These sought-after sculptures are known as "Magiscopes".
Today examples of his work can be found on 1stdibs - for several thousand dollars.
This handsomely proportioned example, which we brought back from Mexico City, is ideal for a desk or console.
Feliciano's smaller sculptures, such as those under three feet, are most sought-after.
His vision is entirely unique yet his work recalls canonized 20th century artists such as Louise Nevelson, HR Giger and Tony Cragg.
Caviar20 great design and great value.
