COOL ARTISTS

Erika Iris Simmons- uses found/donated materials such as cassette and video tapes and old books. Nice choice of medium to help communicate message.

Mark Ryden- For those of you that are into cartoons, here is an artist that has taken it into the realm of painting. Sweet but gory at the same time.

Valeintine by Muniz made of sugar

 

Click here to see Vik Muniz video at ted.com (minutes 5:20 onwards includes art examples) Vik Muniz is a mixed media artist from Brazil. He makes fascinating pieces from a wide variety of materials including sugar, yarn, chocolate, and clouds. The choice of material is almost never random. For example the life-like sugar portraits are portraits of children of sugar plantation workers in the Caribbean.
