Fascinated by the intersection between art and everyday life, Los Carpinteros (The Carpenters) merge architecture, design, drawing, and sculpture in quirky and unpredictable ways. Their carefully crafted constructions advance a humorous visual language of contradiction and transformation—like the utilitarian versus the useless and form versus function. Their drawings and studies, referencing technical drafts and blueprints, mock the early planning stages involved in making art. Los Carpinteros adopted the name for their collective in 1994 to embrace the guild tradition of artisans and skilled laborers.
