The 'Ceramic 12-13' sculpture series by artist Ivan Prieto evokes an unconventional visual aesthetic that merges human and animal forms. Dressed in an animalistic second skin, the artist's human subjects sport sculptural costumes that feature abstracted mouse and rabbit ears. In addition to these animals, the artist also showcases depicts of jungle giraffes and vibrant sea creatures.
This conceptual sculpture series by Ivan Prieto plays with perception and explores a concept of the beast that lives inside of us all. These ceramic sculpted pieces evoke dreamlike imagery that is intricately detailed, highly conceptual and often ambiguous when it comes to age and gender.
The artist's 'Ceramic 12-13' series embodies contemporary design ideals while referencing the past through popular mythological symbolism and iconography.
