I am honored to present this recent book featuring the complete works of art by Pedro S. De Movellan, one of the most renowned kinetic sculptors of this era. As the son of both an architect and an abstract painter, there are influences and balances from each pattern of genetics to be seen in his very individualistic and incredible works.

Each work of art is graceful and refined, the components detailed and exquisitely moving, literally!
|Swiss Movement, 1993, mahogany, maple, bronze and mixed metals 108 x 98 x 16 inches including base|
Ranging in scale from the artist's first outdoor sculpture, the eight-foot-tall Lily in polished aluminum and gold leaf to the most recent carbon fiber works weighing mere ounces, this tome includes every sculpture de Movellán has created throughout his career.

You will find finely detailed conceptual sketches and schematics for select works that are absolutely intricate in their elements and structure. De Movellan even shows and explains specifications of the drive mechanisms that make for such magical movement in his works of art.
