Nico Sales - Bröllop

Artist Statement:
In these times of liquid relationships, of the human body as an element of consumption, it is urgent to acquire a commitment with ourselves.
The "Bröllop" ring is the idea of assembling a symbol as an engagement ring, but this time not to give it to anyone, but to give it to oneself.

Artist Bio:
Nico Sales is an artist born in Madrid, living in Mallorca, Spain.
I studied sociology at the Complutense University of Madrid and later on I studied direction of community processes.
In Mallorca is where I learned the art of jewelry.
Currently I have a small shared workshop in Palma and I have created a contemporary jewelry collective "Go Malaca", which during the quarantine developed a project of jewelry with everyday elements.
My work focuses on the theatricality of the social encounter, all my works are unique and exclusive oversized pieces with a critical and exaggerated message.
Made in recycled materials because it is as important to have a good idea as to develop it in a responsible way with the environment.
Because whatever you say, you are what you do.
