Is there some where I can find info on Susy without paying? see I am in collage and doing a report on her and I cannot find her flipen birthday!!! help would be amazing

I love this work. Really interesting. Specially the "nature" take on her vision.

"Wang indeed (http://www.osang.net/) was doing similar work to this in 1998. That does not mean Susy Oliveira had any knowledge of Mr Wang’s work. The Mesoamerican Indians had no contact with the Egyptians but a similar human brain came up with a similar solution: the pyramid. Some people even say certain ideas have a life and time of their own and are inevitable and if one person doesn’t invent it then someone else will."

I have seen other artist doing this work, a french guy who lives in America I forgot his name, but at the same time it's different than this work or osang's. Very cool all of them. Congrats.

neat idea. especially love The Girl and the Bear and bird on a log. (i like the way the girl looks like a [bear] rug the bear's resting on.. made me laugh when i first saw it)

GREAT!

this must be inspired by this artist:

cool

twisted and disturbing i like it

The technique is fascinating but I am not drawn to the subject matter. Would love to see some of the artist's paintings translated into sculptures like these.

Strangely satisfying to look at and beautifully executed - cubism come alive even tho these two works show human images that look rather dead!
