The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Sebastian's Horse Head


Sebastian was born in Ciudad Camargo, Chihuahua, Mexico. He is not only an artist but also a man of science. His sculpture is visibly concerned with geometric forms and does not submit his geometries to logical symbols, but rather to poetic symbols. The sculpture of Sebastian, objects in space and defined by the plurality of objects in space, multiplies them and forces us to imagine a combination of proximities and distances, of comings and goings. Sebastian’s matter, his material, is steel, aluminum, cardboard, the industrial product bathed in colors closer to Bennetton that to Huejotzingo. One of Mexico's most prominent sculptors, Sebastian has placed some 150 monumental pieces in cities around the world, ranging from Buenos Aires and Osaka to New York City and Mexico City.

In the background, the winged building is one of the first skyscrapers in the Mexican capital, the “El Moro” building, 117 yards (107 m) height, which is one of the safest constructions in this seismic area, cemented over hydraulic jacks. This building, also known as Loteria Nacional, was inaugurated in 1945.
