Acori Honzo

Sculpture, Painting, African American Dolls

Studio 1

Acori Honzo is a sculptor, painter, and doll artist.

His art influences range from Warhol, Norman Rockwell, and Basquiat to comic book artist like Alex Ross and Jim Lee, and his artwork often refers to pop and mass culture. Honzo tries to increase the dynamic between the audience by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations. With a conceptual approach, he considers a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, involving the viewer in a manner that is sometimes physical, and believes in the idea of function following form in his work. Cherry Street Pier provides him the opportunity to evolve and collaborate with other artists, interact with the public by letting them see his process, and hold unique workshops promoting imagination and creativity.
