The orbit of art
Felix usually brings his finished works of art pieces to public areas, such as the streets of New York. He likes the idea of making his art available to the public, regardless of age, origin and class. One of his most famous works is a paper statue depicting the legendary rapper Notorious B.I.G. An artwork that took its time to create, over three months and 7000 sheets of paper later was the 65 pounds’ sculpture of “Biggie” ready.
– I brought the statue of Biggie to his local neighborhood in Brooklyn where he grew up. I met several of his childhood friends followed his career and used to rap with him. They could not believe their eyes and thought it was amazing that I created the statue for him, says Felix.
Felix street performances are parts of an artistic orbit. The circle ends when Felix has filmed his audience's reactions. He loves to combine different kind of medias and sees it all as a single large art project. Felix is just about to create a statue of the legendary rapper 2pac and recently finished an effigy of Bob Marley. He does not see his job as a work, but chooses to call his studio a "funshop".
– You just don’t decide to become an artist, you are born one, you don’t choose to become an artist, it chooses you, says Felix.
