(1988) lives and works in Utrecht, the Netherlands 

Felipe studied architecture and turned to the visual arts shortly after his graduation. With architecture as his background, he creates large spatial installations and sculptures. At the heart of his practice is a focus on the fragile side of architecture. 

His inspiration comes from buildings in which the tipping point between materiality and meaning is made tactile: buildings under construction or in decay, a half-finished structure or the back of a facade. Felipe is fascinated by the precise moments at which sacredness appears in architectural form. His works present themselves often as indefinite and unfinished, as snapshots of this search towards something higher, captured in time.
