Arte! Arte! Arte! Marta Minujin’s simple but fervent motto leaves you with the feeling that in the absence of art, there remains little relevance to…anything. The Argentine phenomenon has been shocking the world with her larger-than-life work since the 1950′s, and has set a new standard for ephemeral art. From controversial paintings to dizzying installations, quirky fashion lines to LSD-inspired texts, breath-taking sculptures to prodigious effigies, and of course, the recurring reproduction and reinterpretation of the obelisk, Minujin’s art is nothing short of magic. Magic mushrooms, that is. Check out her latest projects here: http://www.marta-minujin.com/.
