208. Ismael Cavazos

Ink drawings, breadclips, peanutcarvings, beveragecans


The embryo of a peanut resembles the hooded head and beard of an old man. By carving a body 15 years ago, the character Old Man in the Peanut was born, following in the tradition of seeing faces in electrical outlets, the clouds, and the Man-in-the-Moon. With no limit to mediums, this year explores bread clips and beverage cans.
