Project 4: Sculpture
Se Vende Fruta is inspired by Colombian culture and the Palenqueras of the country, these are the women who sell fruit out on the streets. A huge social aspect is that Colombia and the Latin American culture are a mixture of many different cultures resulting in rich folklore. Colombia also has much African influence, from music to food to street vendors. I wanted to capture the essence of walking down a street in Colombia and how everyday life is always vibrant. This was done through resembling the bright colors and the style of folk art and souvenirs of Colombia.
