Víctor Hugo Yáñez Piña is a Mexican artist who is well-known for his amazing was and resin sculptures, that reimagine life on a larger scale.
His latest masterpieces focus on self-development and the concept of ever developing into a better version of yourself and it is called Self-Made Man.
The sculpture represents a man with a hammer and chisel, who carves himself out until he reaches his fully formed, idealized shape. Piña is exploring the path of self-improvement and how humans can make their own best versions of themselves without waiting for help from the outside.
After his Self-Made Man sculpture, the artist created a similar work that features a woman this time. Both of his sculptures weigh 22 pounds (10 kg) and have a height of 1.6 feet (50 cm). Take a look at the gallery to see more of his work and just imagine how great it would be to see them live once galleries and museums open again.
