Saint Clair Cemin

The Beijing Series

The artist

Born in 1951 in Brazil, Saint Clair Cemin lives and works in Beijing, Paris and New York. In the 1990s he built his reputation on a revolutionary approach to sculpture rooted in a combination of ordinary shapes, references to craftwork and to historical sculpture. His works, built on a blend of precision crafting, noble materials and references to ancient Greece, Art Nouveau and surrealism, are as strangely humorous as they are sensual.
