Marisol Escobar

I picked Marisol as our May artist.

She was born in Paris to Venezuelan parents who were financially comfortable. Her birthday is May 22, 1930. She has one brother who is an economist living in Venezuela.

I like her sculptures the best. Marisol Escobar has lived in Europe, Venezuela, and the United States.

Take a look at a few of her sculptures. What do you think?

Could you take some wood scraps and paint and construct a self-portrait sculpture?

How about making your whole family?
