The theatrical constructions of David Altmejd provoked confusion and delight and remain true to his flair for complexity. This rising star in the international art scene continues to compel us with his inventive style. Welcome to watchmojo.com, I’m your host, Leila. And I’d like to share some of this artistic magic with you. Altbejd combines seemingly random objects into elaborate sculptures. He has been hailed for the shear visual strength of his work. He earned a degree in visual arts from the University of Quebec in Montreal. And by 2001, he completed a Master of Fine Arts from Columbia University. His main interest revolves around the creation of energy. He is said that complexities seduces him. Pointing out that he harbors no desire to communicate a specific idea. Despite conscientiously piecing together his creative construction, Altmejd does not feel that he alone gets to determine the meaning of his art. For that reason, his artwork is loaded with what he calls symbolic potential. His references to legends and monsters contributes to his interest in energy and bodily transformation. Decimated werewolf head, ghosts, and fragments of bodies might appear gory to some, but Altmejd explains that he is not leaning towards gore, but towards a positive expression instead. His characters are not rotting, they are crystallizing according to the artist. Other signature components include hair and mirrors, plastic flowers, and crystals, and other theatrical décor complete with glitter and charms. His influences include Louis Vonjua and his accomplishments include participation at the Istanbul and Withmead Piena, and sales to the Googenheim and Whitney Museums of New York. One of his latest showcases took place at the Venice Piena of visual art, the oldest and most prestigious event for the international display of contemporary arts.
