The sculptures of Brazilian artist Mozart Guerra are unlike any we’ve seen before. Over a base of Styrofoam Guerra uses lengths of brightly colored nylon cord to spirally wind the perfect heads of monkeys, geisha’s and wild animals. In uniquely mixing this modern medium with classic iconography he creates works that are both current and timeless.
Guerra gratuated from school as a architect, later putting his adept hands to work as a designer for theater, film and television in Brazil. Now enjoying his new calling, he has been living and sculpting in Paris since 1992.
