  • Catalogue Essay

    An edition of Oleg Pinchuk's Rozita sculpture is housed in the collection of the famous Latin American writer and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2010, Mario Vargas Llosa. A leading novelist of his generation, Mario Vargas Llosa wrote the following in a letter to Pinchuk: “…. awesome winged hippopotamus, which now occupies the exclusive place in my home. Undoubtedly, this is one of the most beautiful hippopotami in my huge collection I have assembled for the recent years…. I really like the figures you create of animals, plants, fish and people. All of them are a combination of fantasy and realism, with a touch of archness and humour, giving your works a special, unique style of yours."
