Marisa Sayago, MFA

Marisa SayagoSayago's work has been referred to as metaphors for the human condition. It communicates a strong influence from her native Argentina. Her experiences are more of an international scope. With an MFA from the University of North Texas, she was a sculpture apprentice to Alfredo Cantarutti in Cordoba, Argentina.

In recent years she's produced some of the liveliest sculptures in Sacramento, giving her audience new visions of flesh and physicality that create a dynamic language for the inner-self.

Sayago's works are found in private and public collections throughout the United States, South America, and Europe, including the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach. Sayago was recently rated #148 in the Top Latin American Artists listing. www.sayagoart.com
