Declaration of the Artist
Amarist Studio works within a framework of reflection and development of pieces critic with today’s international social, cultural, and economic news.
A series of everyday objects and preconceived symbols are transformed into functional sculptures to stimulate consciousness. Changing inherited concepts and putting to manifest the consequences behind our actions and interests. All the pieces are characterized by their colossal visual power, transmitting questions and challenging issues of today’s international news.
During the process of reflection and creation of their work, Amarist Studio felt the necessity to move from concepts to action. As an example of how Art and Design can be important actors to change concepts and help improve society. The Studio generated the Welcome Movement, a collection of jewelry made entirely with pieces of the border walls, whose proceeds are donated to the refugees fleeing war zones and natural disasters. Welcome changes the meaning of the razor wire and makes it a symbol of respect, tolerance and human dignity. Generating a viral movement to raise awareness and funds to the needs of survivors.
