The Absinthe Drinker, after Edgar Degas (Pictures of Magazines 2) 2011 Edition 4/6 Vik Muniz'sartwork has a grand accessibility, in a modern day Warholian manner, and through an extensive visuallanguage touches the viewers collective memory.The fascination and exploration of the language lies atthe foundation of his work and is entrenched with dualities and his own personal influences. The artistsblue collar upbringing in Sao Paolo interwoven with his path to the United States and love of art historyadd complexity to the creation of the images, Conceptually and practically the dichotomies and tensionare evident through the ever changing , democratic selection of materials where all sources are equal.Puzzles, dirt, pigment, wire, magazines, spaghetti, caviar, chocolate, and diamonds are only a few of thematerials he has used in his oeuvre., but the final product is consistent and always taken through thelens of the camera.
