About: Michael C. Hsiung

I spend my days drawing, making prints, stickers, and zines; collaborating with my sister, artist Pearl Hsiung, under the Fight To The Death moniker; and doing freelance work. I'm currently working on a new exhibition, Who Cares Wins, which opens in June 2014 at the Vincent Price Art Museum.

      The Perfect Male Form?

      This bronze sculpture is a copy of an ancient Roman marble statue known as the Belvedere Antinous, long considered one of the most beautiful statues to survive from antiquity. Engravings of the statue were used as models in the study of perfect body proportions.

      The bronze was once owned by Louis XIV, who purchased bronze replicas of ancient sculptures to enhance his kingly magnificence.
