Vik Muniz is celebrated for his joyful, quirky, dark, and occasionally mind-boggling work that riffs on popular photographic imagery, referencing social icons and cultural realities and juxtaposing these themes in fascinating ways.
This book features an extraordinary selection of works that span Muniz's entire career-more than 150 colour illustrations display the enormous range of Muniz's work and the disorienting and expansive logic of his world. International icon Jackie O is portrayed with diamonds with as much reverence as Brazilian landfill workers whose portraits are created from the trash they collect. The Mona Lisa is recreated in peanut butter and jelly. Artist Jackson Pollock is depicted in his studio in a work made entirely out of chocolate syrup. Throughout, Muniz's irreverent and thought-provoking approach to his subjects reveals the shaky underpinnings of universally accepted "truths."
