Vik MUNIZ

“ Art has the power of changing the way you look at things and challenging your vision of the world...”  

 

Vik Muniz is a contemporary Brazilian artist whose work is steeped in pop culture. The artist reuses waste and low-tech elements to create clean works, or reinvest in art classics. Dust, cigarette ends, puzzle, magnets, toys… Muniz can transform any material into a medium. He then takes a photograph of the assembled work. The illusion of the image disconcerts the spectators. Through his work, Muniz invites us to take a different look at familiar masterpieces in which he has inserted elements of everyday life.
