Pretty Boy Sculpture

2013

Temporary Art Project

Pretty Boy was a loan from artist David Buckingham for MOAH’s Frostig at Large: The Artists of the Frostig Collection exhibition. It is a full-bodied and multi-dimentional version of the smaller masks he created for the Frostig Collection in 2011. Buckingham earned his reputation as a “neo-Pop” artist by fashioning together scraps of metal he collected from the Mojave Desert. He never applies paint to his sculptures, but instead relies on the inherent uniqueness of the metal he finds. Pretty Boy welcomed visitors at the main entrance of MOAH in 2013 and was also seen in West Hollywood on the Santa Monica Blvd. median.
