Edgar Orlaineta

Mexico City based artist, Edgar Orlaineta, takes midcentury modernist design as his point of creative departure. Orlaineta investigates modernist ideals (which rejected outdated traditional styles and structures in art, architecture, and design, for a more streamlined, pure, and geometric aesthetic) praises both subject and form in modern art and design, as well as the contradictory ideologies that are forced upon the work due a certain legacy within a larger historical/cultural context. This is the foundation of Orlaineta’s practice—that his work seeks to honor multiple histories, and to represent them aesthetically and interchangeably via his own production.


His sculptures have been shown around the world at major art institutions including the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, and Museum of Arts and Design, New York.
