Lot description
Since the mid-1990s, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz (b. 1961, São Paulo) has earned praise internationally for the photographic pieces he creates out of everyday materials including chocolate, peanut butter, sugar, and dirt. These images, inspired by current events, art history or famous figures, are familiar yet enigmatic. Initially taking the form of witty visual statements, his works question the way visual information is constructed, presented and then perceived by the viewer.

Widely collected, Muniz's work is in the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; the Daros Foundation, Zurich; and the Tate, London.
