Mozart Guerra, The Girl From Kyoto 2 (2010)

Brasilian-born, Paris-based sculptor Mozart Guerra creates these psychadelic, hyper-real sculpture busts from nylon rope and expansive Styrofoam. These simple materials are combined in such a way to create realistic, tangible and graphic statements, covering subjects from geishas to skulls to evolution in order to tackle deeper territory such as sexuality, stereotypes and cultural clichés.

The sculptures are bold and striking in their immediacy, even more so because of the economy of Guerra’s means.
