Samuel Guillén (Caracas, 1977) is a Venezuelan-American jewelry maker and designer trained under the mentorship of Ursi Galletti (Caracas), Susan Sloan and Klaus Bürgel (New York).
An accomplished silversmith, Guillén conceives, designs and materially produces all his pieces in limited editions, featuring repetitive patterns through hollow construction techniques in sterling silver.
Guillen's most recent production has taken inspiration on the entanglements of basic metallic elements that constitute urban and industrial landscape: rough steel, cabling, scaffolding, tubing etc. By transforming this structures into arresting visual presences he finds the main motifs for his jewelry.
Living and working in New York, his work has been shown at the Centro Cultural Secaderos in Caracas (Venezuela) and at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake design store in São Paulo (Brasil). His last solo exhibition, titled "Samuel Guillen: Recent Jewelry 2015" took place at Davis and Langdale Company in New York, which currently represents his work.
