back to Our Fragile Planet



Renán studied sculpture at La Casa del Artista Sculpture Studio, went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts Degree with emphasis in Sculpture, and is currently a professor of visual arts at the University of Costa Rica, where he teaches drawing and anatomy in addition to sculpture.

He has participated extensively in group exhibitions and symposia throughout Costa Rica and has completed several public commissions.

Renán works in bronze, clay, wood and stone, and his style ranges from figurative to abstract.


This exhibition of paintings, photography and sculpture is a celebration of the beauty and vulnerability of our natural world, by visiting Costa Rican artists Florencia Madrigal, Sebastian Mello, Elisa Morera, Mariamarta Pacheco, Renán Calvo Chaves, Canadian/ Costa Rican artist Francisco Castro Lostalo and Canadian/Italian artist Janet Candido. The exhibition complements a demonstration of sculpture and painting by the same artists at First Canadian Place Park. Both events are focusing on the preservation of natural resources by recycling marble panels from the façade of First Canadian Place as raw material for their art.
