After more than 20 years as a painter, and also a sculptor of recovered objects, Pras conceived in 1997, an astonishing form of expression, using photography as a basis for the creation of what amounts to a form of installation art.” Represented by: www.vvdm-gallery.com All photos: www.vvdm-gallery.com See more Previous article Button Art Next article Conflict Minerals Written by Keiren Keiren is an artist who lives in New York City.
