'Brutus' by Dik Downey
Green masked Lucha Libre wrestler. Ceramic, impressed vintage lettering stamps and gold leafed emblem on wood base by Dik Downey. 22cm x 22cm x 11cm.
As a visual artist, Dik sculpts strange, comic and grotesque characters influenced by Outsider Art, African bronzes, Czech animation and traditional Punch and Judy. Found objects are used to mount his sculptures, often holding significant and poignant memories, such as a fence-post from the church where his late father played the organ.
