Chillida began drawing at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, and little by little her interest in sculpture grew. It will be during his years in Paris that he makes his first plaster sculptures, impressed by the archaic Greek sculpture in the Louvre. In the French capital he will celebrate his first exhibition of sculpture, in 1950. In 1951 he definitively returns to San Sebastián, and makes the first work of his in iron, a material with which he will work for the rest of his life. . Throughout his life, Chillida received numerous awards and accolades, including the Carnegie Prize, the Rembrandt Prize, the Wolf Foundation Prize for the Arts and the Prince of Asturias Prize for the Arts. He was also an academic of San Fernando, and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Honorary of the Royal Academy of Arts in London and the Imperial Order of Japan, and obtained the Grand Cross for Humanitarian Merit from the Institution of the same Barcelona name. In addition to its Chillida-Leku Museum by Hernani, it is represented in museums and collections around the world, such as the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the MOMA in New York, the Reina Sofía in Madrid, the Tate Gallery in London or the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Chillida now is one of the most important artist of the 20th as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Pablo Picasso or Dali.
