Lithograph / screenprint

Muniz’s long fascination with the work of Chuck Close is reflected in this planographic self-portrait. At Graphicstudio, he pays homage to Close’s Fingerprint portraits, and uses found rubber stamps in the studio (such as TO BE DESTROYED, NOT FOR SALE, ABANDONED PROJECT) for inking his own image. The resulting lithograph, Vik, was printed on a deep yellow screenprint background.


The Artist

Vik Muniz

Starting his artistic career off as a sculptor, Vik Muniz then found his passion was leaning more towards photography. This Brazilian born artist works in both New York and Rio de Janiero. He presents much of his bold work now through photography, reproducing famous paintings or often his photos can illustrate art history or pop culture. He is known to use unusual materials in his work such as sugar, wire, garbage and coloured paper, even diamonds.
