Born in 1950 in Valencia - Spain.
From his studies of architecture and philosophy and later those of Fine Arts, Enrique Asensi completes the circle of form, its expression and philosophical expansion and the sensitive details that are directed towards the existential and metaphysical spirit of the single existence. When you meet a sculpture of Asensi you establish an intimate dialogue with the contained soul that takes refuge within its walls. When you see a painting by Asensi, matter overflows, rebels to two-dimensionality to catch your attention and graze you with the textures, organic colors and traces of the hand of an artist who breathes volume. Marble, iron, and wood as conventional sculptural materials are expressed by the hand of a more than contemporary artist, an artist who makes good art an art of our times. An artist that preserves, that safeguards and rescues the purest principles of the matter.
Between Barcelona and Cologne, between stones and frames, between field and chisels, Enrique Asensi continues to create eloquent and very powerful works. The monumentality of his work leads us to the limits of public art, to interventions in common spaces outdoors or in private spaces of large dimensions. Smaller sculptures are only in measures because the effect of monumentality is perceived impeccably. The works of Asensi are living entities that express themselves in space by shouting or whispering. The Totems that rise towards the sky, the stone like Stone Edge, the doors like Oteiza or the public art like Chillida make this artist inheritor of an intrinsic force as a propeller that destroys everything to clean the land before intervening it and resting later there.
There are many exhibitions both collective and individual inside and outside Spain that are recorded as witnesses to the success and acceptance of this artist in the altars of good taste. The art market always goes hand in hand with his work and makes every day Asensi quotes upward in all transactions of his legacy. The work of this great and already consolidated artist brings us closer to the aesthetic enjoyment and the monumentality of the shape determined with great talent and skill, promoting the character of the material he uses, thus enhancing the strength of his message.
The works of Enrique Asensi are present in great public and private collections. The abstract of its forms clearly dialog with the physical presence and the power of matter. The hand of this artist gives soul to everything he touches.
