FERNANDO CARPANEDA (Brazilian, 1967- ), “Biker Jerking Off” (Detail), 2012, Clay, cement, human hair, fabric, wood and acrylic paint, 8″ x 3.37″ x 3.37″, Gift from artist, Tom of Finland Foundation Permanent Collection

Carpaneda was born in Brasília, Brazil. He works with clay sculptures. His main theme is always the human being. He watches people in the streets, bars, concerts, and places where people sell their bodies. Fernando makes portraits of rent boys, punks, junkies, thieves and outcasts. Instead of attaching himself to muses, he focuses on male nudes to compose his art pieces, having the human being, the masculine, as the main goal in his work. All his portraits are like a relic, a holy place, a moment caught in time.

 

ToFF is very proud to have this wonderful sculpture in its collection.
