Luna Paiva was born in Paris, grew up between Argentina and France and lives in Barcelona. A flight with stopovers in which art has been the destination, regardless of the landing strip. Daughter of the renowned painter and photographer Rolando Paiva and the gallery owner Teresa Anchorena, her work is pure formal freedom, the logical or not so logical consequence of a mixture of scenarios and ways of seeing the world. A twist on everyday objects, like his towers of bronze chairs, or a kind of monumental organicism, like his sculptures of plants or his totems of stones, also in bronze.
After graduating in Art History and Archaeology from La Sorbonne, Luna moved to New York University, where he studied film directing, followed by training in photography under his father's guidance and a stay at the Di Tella Film Laboratory. The perfect background for the artistic career he has developed, among which photography, cinematography and, of course, sculpture stand out.
Precisely, in the latter, we have had the opportunity to collaborate in the creation of a work that commemorates the inauguration of our Ikon project in Valencia. A skyscraper designed by Ricardo Bofill, whom Luna knew well and with whom he had a great emotional and artistic connection. As a result of this connection, at the foot of Bofill's building, stands the work "Balanced Stones", signed by Luna Paiva and donated to the city by Kronos Homes, as part of our programme of sculpture donations to bring art to the cities in which we are present. Made in bronze and with a marked vertical composition, the sculpture nods to the totemic character of Ikon, while highlighting its more spiritual side, as a symbol of a city in the midst of transformation and as a legacy of one of the most brilliant architects of the 20th century.
