Roberto Luis Giardili. I was born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1942. Before graduating as an Electronic Engineer, I worked on both applied mechanics and mechanical design. Later, I developed an extensive professional career, mainly focused on electronic design, while teaching at university level. In my late forties, I started to study Fine Arts becoming a Sculpture Professor in 1998. It was not until my retirement that I started to developed sculptures based on mathematical concepts. The whole process is hand-crafting, meaning that I construct the sculptures as well as the necessary tools to realize these sculptures.
