Artistas plásticos...

Hola Inma,

I really enjoyed this 'reader'. I'm a big Rosalía fan! 

I'm just curious about the 'artistas plásticos' mentioned in this article. Is this simply describing artists that create art from plastic? 

Gracias :)

Hola Clara,

The word plásticos doesn't refer here to the plastic itself, it's to do with "plasticidad"(being mouldable), so "los artistas plásticos" are those who work with materials that are mouldable, e.g "la pintura", "la escultura"...

You can have a look at how Wikipedia describes "artes plásticas".

Saludos,

Inma
