The exhibits created by artist PSI were crafted using life-casting techniques, wherein three-dimensional plaster molds are taken directly from living human bodies. This art form allows viewers to experience the beauty and depth of the human form in a unique, realistic way.

The 21 characters featured in this exhibition are directly cast and transformed into works of art using a variety of materials such as plaster, ceramics, lacquer, and more. Through this creative process, the characters come to life in a truly unique and captivating way. Visitors will be able to appreciate the skill and artistry behind each piece, as well as the diversity of materials used to create them. Whether it’s a sculpture or an intricate painting, each character is sure to leave a lasting impression. So, don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to witness art in action!

People often forget that their hearts are full of possibilities. Whether they are big or small, these possibilities are always there.

According to artist PSI, each person’s being contains many big and small things, and it’s easy to forget that our hearts are full of possibilities. These possibilities, no matter their size, always remain within us.

“A ‘being’ always has two essential components: the ‘body’ and the ‘substance’,” she proclaimed. “Each person can possess one or more distinct ‘beings’ that add to the uniqueness and diversity of the individual.”

The exhibition in Venice, Italy, is a mesmerizing blend of makeup artistry and mask-making. It showcases the beauty and skill of these two creative disciplines, bringing together some of the most renowned establishments in the makeup and mask-making industries. Visitors to this exhibition can explore the intricate designs and details of the masks, marvel at the artistry of the makeup, and learn about the cultural and historical significance of these two art forms. It is an experience that will leave a lasting impression and provide an insight into the beauty and creativity of these two unique crafts.
