Born in Asturias, Northern Spain, Maximo Riera has been a practicing artist for over thirty years. Maximo has now retired from his professional life in the medical industry, and dedicates his full-time to his imagination. He spends almost every day painting and sculpting in his studio. His latest project is the Animal Chair collection.
“Each chair retains the animal’s natural vitality whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This collection is homage to these animals and the whole animal kingdom which inhabits our planet, as an attempt to reflect and capture the beauty of nature in each living thing.” – Maximo Riera
Apart from being a great artist, Maximo is kind human being as well. Throughout his career he held several exhibitions and events for his work, with all proceeds going to charity. Below you will find his dynamic work. These limited editions 353lb chairs are made in high density polyurethane and range from £35,000 – £65,000 per chair. The amount of detail makes them look very life-like. Enjoy!
