A significant part of Plensa’s production is set in the context of public sculpture, a sphere in which he has works installed in Spain, France, Japan, the U.K., Germany, Canada, and the U.S.A. Plensa now lives and works in Barcelona.

Plensa has created numerous public works around the world, including his biggest project, and undoubtedly one of his most brilliant sculptures, The Crown Fountain in Chicago’s Millennium Park.  He unveiled his most recent public sculpture, Wonderland, in Calgary, AB, Canada, but has recently presented Echo for Madison Square Park, in New York, World Voices in Dubai, UAE, and Ogijima’s Soul in Ogijima, Japan.

Plensa has had solo exhibitions at the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas; Musée Picasso, Antibes; Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid; Galerie National du Jeu de Paume, Paris; and the Arts Club of Chicago, among many others.

At the Gazelli Art House’s opening show, he presented his light and 'verbal' sculpture, Overflow, where stainless steel letters are soldered together to create the figure of a sitting man. Additionally, a selection of Plensa’s mixed media drawings on paper were showcased.
