Richard Buxani is an Imus-based sculptor with a degree of BS Architecture from the Royal and Pontifical University of Santo Tomas. Born of a mixed-racial marriage growing up in Manila, Buxani transcends his discipline, domesticity, and regionalism to a more dynamic and contemporary universal approach to his works – integrating pop art, religious beliefs, popular icons and architectural sensibilities to achieve his style.
His sculptural works are mostly metal, either black iron sheets or brass, done in the manner of bend and weld, rather than casting. The sense of balance in his sculptures and the scarcity of elements, all depict a story that is hard to miss. It is not exactly difficult to see the sense of aesthetics in his art, though sometimes anachronistic, but nevertheless as stunning as it is old-fashionably relevant.
According to Buxani himself, he was taught the bend and weld method, to which he now calls the “MateRealization.” He has always liked the challenge of this method since it allows him to directly interact with the material and eventually see it to fruition in accordance with the images he had in mind.
The samurai warrior started out in 2009, about the same time he started tinkering with sculpture outside of his work in architecture, and the ideas had been simmering until 2017 when the series started out. It has since evolved into even more sophisticated works that “depict movement capturing the essence of the life of a samurai” that started a series of sculptures. This captured the eyes of art lovers and collectors alike.
With his expertise, he has done numerous group exhibits – a two-man show and 12 solo exhibitions to his credit. He has also participated in exhibits in the USA, Hongkong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Egypt, and South Korea. He was also invited to participate as a jury in several art competitions abroad.
