Silverio Rivas sculptures

Famous emblems of the city.

Silverio Rivas, another big name in Galician contemporary art, is the artist behind some of the most popular symbols of Vigo. These sculptures can be found all over the city centre; for example, you'll find Horizonte para o sol on the university campus and the Bicententario monument, a five-metre-high sculpture commemorating the 200th anniversary of the city, in a small square with the same name. Other works by Rivas include a methacrylate sculpture on the façade of the Casa Galega da Cultura and a sculpture in the Quiñones de León museum. His impressive career, over which his work has been displayed in various European countries, was acknowledged in 2015 with the Laxeiro prize; a prestigious award from the Foundation of the great Galician painter.
