Roberto Benavidez

The artist's statement, in its entirety:
Half-breed, South Texan, queer, figurative sculptor specializing in the piñata form; playing on themes of race, sexuality, art, sin, humor and beauty.
These "piñatas" -- the quotes are because they aren't full of candy and you're not supposed to smash them, but anyway that's what Benavidez calls them -- are based on images from the Luttrell Psalter and Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights.
