MUT MAT, which means Materials Mutation, is a project made by the designer and artist Juan Garcia. In this project you will find objects that oscillate between design objects and art. For him the street is a place full of valuable things that for some reason were catalogued as garbage. From this starting point, Juan Garcia takes these materials, transforms them and in conclusion creates these unique pieces, using unconventional production methods giving his pieces a new aesthetic.
Juan Garcia has worked and studied in different countries, he started his career in Bogotá-Colombia, then moved to Mexico City where he studied at the Universidad Autonoma de Mexico and now recides in Berlin – Germany where he did his Master studies at the University of the Arts in Berlin (UdK). In this last city he lives and continues experimenting with “The Street Museum”.
