Vik Muñiz

Brazilian b.1961

Born 1961, São Paulo, Brazil.
Vik Muniz is a Brazilian artist and photographer. Initially a sculptor, Muniz grew interested with the photographic representations of his work, eventually focusing completely on photography.
Primarily working in series, Muniz incorporates the use of quotidian objects such as diamonds, sugar, chocolate syrup and garbage in his practice to create bold, ironic and often deceiving imagery, gleaned from the pages of pop culture and art history.
His work has been met with both commercial success and critical acclaim, and has been exhibited worldwide.
Lives and works in New York City and Rio de Janeiro.
