We all have some talent, that activity that fascinates us and in which we are really good, but there are prodigious people who boast of having different gifts, which allows them to explore various areas in which they feel fulfilled.
Such is the case of the renowned actor Brad Pitt, who dares to venture down new paths by making his foray into the plastic arts, an activity that we were not used to, but which we hope will become something transcendent in his life as an artist. .
the star of Bullet train made his debut by exhibiting his work in a group show at the Sara Hildén Art Museum in Tampere, Finland, presenting his pieces alongside musician Nick Cave and artist Thomas Houseago, who are part of the exhibition called “We”.
For me it’s about self-reflection… It was born out of ownership of what I call a ‘radical inventory of self’. To be really, brutally honest with myself and take into account those I may have hurt and the times I was wrong.
1. House A Go Gohis first sculpture, from 2017
This is a representation of a rustic style house, only 45 cm. The sculpture was made by the artist with pieces of wood and tree bark and was crudely attached with adhesive tape.
two. Aiming at you, I saw myself, but this time it was too lateof 2020
This is one of Pitt’s largest pieces and is made of plaster. It shows a shootout between two people, who as they fall wounded, leave their figures captured, as if they were different people at the same time.
3. Self-inflicted gunshot wound in the house
This is a structure that resembles the shape of a house, it was molded in transparent silicone and has various marks of shots.
4. Great sculpture
It is another of the largest pieces presented by the artist. Without a doubt, its shape reminds us of that of a coffin. In addition, it has different figures of hands, feet and faces coming to the surface from different angles, as if simulating a human trying to escape from the box.
5. Covid-19 project
This sculpture is made up of simple candle holders that were made for their loved ones. When the actor was asked about this work, he described it as something “made in the time of covid-19”.
Pitt has a sculpture studio in his mansion in Los Angeles, California. Apparently, his work as a sculptor has been a kind of therapy, since he began to develop in this field just after his divorce with Angelina Jolie in 2017.
Her friend, the artist from Branne Treu, published the images of the event on her social networks and referred to the great impression that Brad Pitt’s collection left on all the attendees, who considered him a true artist.
