Los Trompos by Hector Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena

On display: Feb. 23-March 5, 2018

Los Trompos are back! Los Trompos in Spanish translates to “The Spinning Tops,” describing the internationally popular childhood toys. These interactive and energetic installations are made of giant steel frames with a traditional-style weaving technique by Mexican artisans. Scottsdale Public Art purchased these interactive works for Canal Convergence 2017 and they have been on display in various Scottsdale locations leading up to their return for Canal Convergence 2018.

Hector Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena come from a studio specializing in design solutions for bars, restaurants, hotels and commercial spaces. Their innovative minds came together to creatively rethink furniture, interiors and other everyday products by using clean lines with unexpected colors and shapes. The artists’ public works are expansive and interactive, using energetic colors and techniques to invite the public to participate.
