Héctor Esrawe

Based in Mexico City, multidisciplinary artist Héctor Esrawe has built a comprehensive body of work spanning architecture and product design. Each of his pieces embodies Esrawe’s unwavering commitment to the significant craftsmanship and cultural heritage of his native country. Naturally drawn to sculptural and/or conceptual design, the artist’s signature editions is rooted in his appreciation for materials and artisanal processes and a particular interest in Mexico’s ancestral metalsmithing techniques.

Esrawe’s work is a contemporary tribute to the depth and breadth of his country’s cultural legacy, combining innovative and time-honored techniques, he reinterprets and imbues common forms with revisited purposes, artisanal processes, and recontextualized materials, shedding his personal light and perspective onto them.

Héctor Esrawe graduated from the Industrial Design department of the Universidad Iberoamericana, where he then taught as a professor. In 2003, he established his multidisciplinary studio in Mexico City, where he and his team of architects and designers continue to practice today. Additionally, Esrawe co-founded an open edition design studio named EWE Studio, MASA — a design gallery whose curatorial program focuses on fostering Mexico's local design and artistic creativity, and Mexico's glassmaking collective VISSIO. His work has been widely exhibited, including at Objective Gallery in China and New York, Collectional Gallery in the United Arab Emirates, and MASA Galería in Mexico. Today, the artist’s work belongs to significant collections around the world, both private and institutional, including the permanent collection of the High Museum of Atlanta.
