“Here is my last public sculpture located in Lima, in Miraflores.  The title of the sculpture is ‘The New Column Without End’ and is 10 feet in height. The metal color is inspired by a child’s dream of going to heaven.”   Miguel Angel Velit, Lima Peru.

Miguel Velit’s works are in severals museums, private collections, art magazine articles, Sculpture Magazines, Public Parks and Galleries throughout Peru, South America, Europa, USA, Asia, Emiratos Arabes, Bolivia, Chile, Miami and China.
He is also an accomplished painter, executing large stretched canvas acrylics in a brilliant, robust style as bold and direct as his sculptural pieces.
