Fascinating Art: Vik Muniz

Self-portrait by celebrated contemporary collage artist Vik Muniz. The collage aspect of it gives the piece a much more authentic feeling. You also appreciate the effort that is put in to make a self portrait through collage, I couldn't do that.

Vik Muniz originally from São Paulo, Brazil
now lives + works in New York. Watch the documentary, WASTELAND,  by Lucy Walker. It's  about the Brazilian catadores (trash pickers) and the artist Vik Muniz.

Sugar boy- I like this one because it seems very difficult to draw something out of sugar.

Big James Sweats Buckets - Sugar Children I chose this, because I like how Vik Muniz uses the sugar to represent the child's life.
