I was so inspired by how he has impacted so many peoples lives, I wanted to see his other work. Muniz began his career as a sculptor in the late 1980s. He developed his characteristic style by making the drawings out of readily recognizable non-art materials (i.e. chocolate sauce, sugar, diamonds, wire, or thread). This process of making a drawing out of a nontraditional material and then photographing it has been central to Muniz’s work ever since.
