Artist Pepon Osorio

Posted in Installations on Tuesday December 20 2011

Just watched the PBS series Art 21 & thought I'd share one of the artists that I found very amusing. Pepon Osorio! :D More specifically, his work entitled "En la barbaria no se llora (No Crying Allowed in the Babershop)".

Watch Place on PBS. See more from ART:21.

I especially love how he stamped "100% MACHO" underneath each hubcap on the wall to signify himself becoming a man. The hair hanging from underneath the barber chair is also a nice little touch, don'tcha think?

More artwork by Pepon Osorio can be found HERE.
Also found this gorgeous piece. I love the idea that it is made to break down with the passing of time to signify mortality.
