BIOGRAPHY OF CHELITA ZUCKERMANN 

I am a Mexican an Italian Architect and artist. I was born in Mexico City in 1965, I graduated in Architecture in 1991. In 2006 I moved to Italy, where I’ve been working as an Artist. I chose metal as the material for my sculptures, since I used it in my architectural projects. I like metal because for me it represents strength and character, so I started creating artistic works, by transforming stainless steel, corten steel and aluminum plates into sculptures.

Since 2017, seventeen of my sculptures are placed in public places in Italy and two in Mexico.

Since 2019 two of my sculptures are part of the art collections of two museums, one in the PAPALOTE Museum in Mexico City and the other in the Museo Dei Lumi in the Jewish Museum of Casale Monferrato, Italy. 

Since 2018 I have won four first Art prizes, in Italy and USA.
Thanks to the stainless steel and polished aluminum that I use, my sculptures reflect natural and artificial light and blend with the environment, taking its colors as a reflection. The lightness of aluminum allows my aluminum sculptures to move in the wind. I want to bring joy and light with my work.
