Description

Saint Clair Cemin's subject for this color aquatint and etching is the visage of an intense warrior. Like the Japanese woodcuts of the Kabuki aragoto poses of the Samurais, this warrior has his eyes crossed, a symbol of power and anger. The face is tattooed and he sports a large Mohawk haircut. In the background is a wall of graffiti, or pictographs.

Saint Clair Cemin was born in Cruz Alta, Brazil in 1951. He studied art in Paris at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts. In 1978 he moved to New York to live and work. He is primarily known for his sculptures and installation works.

His sculpture has been exhibited internationally and has had a one-person show at the Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC.
