Pictures of People
The first major UK show of Brazilian artist Vik Muniz focuses on his series of portraits. The photographic images include works from art history and portraits of well-known people. His choice of materials to make his photographs reads like an extraordinary shopping list; chocolate, ink, peanut butter, sugar, soil, thread, glue, and more recently diamonds and caviar have all been used by Muniz. With a strong sense of irony and playful vitality he breathes new life into iconic images.
Pictures of People highlights his remarkable portraits series, and will include pictures of Marilyn Monroe, Che Guevara, Liz Taylor, Dracula, painter Gerhard Richter, the Brazilian footballer Emerson, Marlon Brando and Elvis Presley .
Pictures of People has been made possible with the generous support of Albion, London and Renos Xippas Gallery, Paris
