Arteaga’s work is centred around building spacial forms that incorporate human behaviours. This piece has been constructed using traditional boat-building techniques, and the surface coated in the same lime wash used on the buildings of his hometown of Cadiz. As you enter the structure you are immediately enveloped in a protective calming embrace, that allows you to step outside the frantic space that is urban life.
