Vik Muniz

Brooklyn, NY

“Vik Muniz is a Brazilian-born (b.1961) artist based in New York City and Rio de Janeiro who uses unconventional materials and methods to create images culled from pop culture and art history. His work appears in international museum collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. The Academy-award nominated documentary “Waste Land” featured his collaboration with catadores (waste-pickers) to create masterworks of art from recycled materials. Muniz was an artistic director of the 2016 Paralympic opening ceremony in Brazil.”
