Dripped Plasticine Portraits

November 29, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Mondongo (Spanish for tripe) are an Argentinian art collective consisting of Juliana Laffitte, Manuel Mendanha and Agustina Picasso who work primarily with delicately dripped and molded plasticine. I was struck by the vibrant colors used in these particular pieces, wondering how much time it would take to create the myriad colors and apply them so precisely to a canvas. Amazing. The bulk of their work is actually quite sexually explicit compared to these, so beware your additional research. The group will have new work on display at Art Basel Miami later this week.
