Artist Vik Muniz doesn´t use common paint, but different, exotic materials to create amazing works. Anything from sugar, chocolate and caviar to “diamonds” and soil are used for his breathtaking illusions. See for yourself…
51-year-old Vik Muniz was born in Sao Paulo and grew up in Brazil. After moving to the United States in 1984, he has been living and working in New York City. Vik Muniz exhibited his fascinating works all over the world (e.g. South Africa, Italy, Japan, Colombia). Besides, the artist supports social projects in Rio de Janeiro.
