Name: Pierre Santos
Year of Birth: 1991
Pierre Santos is a London based artist who constructs humanoid figures that traverse different cultures and points in human history.
With his love of fantasy, the Ocean and nature, Pierre’s blurring of fact and legend, fiction and reality, creation and myth create truly original art pieces that are hybrid entities taking on the form of sculpture.
Much like Mary Shelley’s Victor Frankenstein, who gave life to a humanoid from non-living matter, Pierre takes from myth, legend and religions of old and pieces fragments of each together into new transformative identities.
Pierre’s process involves archiving imagery ranging from ancient art, diverse cultures, alternative religions, spirituality, dwellings at the bottom of the Ocean and just the plain absurd.
Through all of this Pierre tries to translate with wisdom through the medium, which he knows… sculpture
