As I browsed this week’s news articles, I have found this interesting display of artwork featured in juxtapoz.com.  Two distinct creative expressions are mashed up to form a unique type of masterpiece.  I consider Canadian artist Susy Oliveira a genius for combining the art of sculpture and photography in her artwork collection of outstanding 3D sculptures.

On July 5, Susy Oliveria will be participating in the 2012 Tropical Contact High, collaborative exhibition with Lauren Hall, Erin Stump Projects in Toronto.  They have not provided details which of her particular masterpieces will be on display.  But I think it will be an amazing display of creative works.
