Lorenzo as a practising artist transforms metal objects into sculptures that evolve from the visual rhetoric of Minimalism and double as ‘canvases’. Belenguer is like a hunter who trawls the city for found objects, sometimes sourced as locally as the back garden of the studios' church. This use of found objects can also be seen metaphorically in his series of drawings based on fashion adverts. Within this series he finds and focuses on the individual within those fashion adverts. These drawings were selected for a group show at the Tate Modern in May 2010.
