What are they saying about his work:

VAM 35 JURIED ART EXHIBIT |  Art Gallery of Mississauga.

"...One great exception is Nacho Cartagena’s three-dimensional “Artilleria Elevator”. This wall-mounted sculpture made entirely of cork evokes a whimsical Wild West-inspired, multilevel world. This fun piece is a good breather in a painting-heavy exhibit.

Other then its aesthetic qualities, the work reminds us of places imbued with human warmth and , at least mentally, takes us away from the cold jungles of steels glass, plastic and concrete that we live in today.” -

" An evocative piece of work masterfully executed. "

Representing a human environment, although there is no human figure to be seen in this three dimensional work, its impact and appeal come from that very human element which is absent. From a purely artistic and esthetic point of view, it captures and holds the viewer's interest through use and dynamic arrangement of a rich variety of interesting forms and shapes. With infinitive variations in shape, size, volume and direction, the artist has made highly creative and expressive use of limited material.

Other then its aesthetic qualities, the work reminds us of places imbued with human warmth and , at least mentally, takes us away from the cold jungles of steels glass, plastic and concrete that we live in today.” -
