Brooklyn-based artist, Vik Muniz, has a unique approach to facsimile works of art. We love Muniz’s large-format portrait art that he made using piles of garbage in Brazil, and we love his collection entitled “Pictures of Magazines” that features replications of famous paintings using pieces of torn magazine pages. The pages appear to be carefully torn, or cut in some cases, to include specific imagery like faces, buildings, products, etc., but what remains impressive is how the imagery all comes together in magical collage format to create a larger image. Colour and contrast are hard at work in these beauties, and Muniz deserves serious kudos for his ability to reproduce the classic paintings including Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” and “Portrait of Adeline Ravoux”, Edouard Manet’s “A Bar at the Folies Bergere” and “Boy Blowing Bubbles”, Caravaggio’s “Sick Bacchus”, Geroge Stubb’s “Green Monkey”, Paul Cezanne’s “The Card Players”, Georges Seurat’s “A Sunday on La Grand Jatte”, Mary Cassatt’s “Picking Flowers In A Field,”
