The Mondongo art group is composed of three talented artists named Juliana Laffitte, Manuel Mendanha and Agustina Picasso. This Argentinian trio whose group name means "tripe" in Spanish uses plasticine to create a kind of work that is complex by its richness in color and texture.
Similar to the shape and texture of tripe, their portraits consist of millions of vibrant and colorful strings molded together onto a canvas to give life to a realistic faces. From afar these images look like a mixture of watercolors with oil on canvas, but from up close, it becomes visible the myriad of forms and hues of the plasticine.
The Mondongo art group will have an exhibition at the Art Basel Miami later this week.
