Artist Entitled on back. Photographed on site at Heidelberg. The sculpture is composed of a variety of items including clothing and found objects, assembled into the form of an anthropomorphic figure. Guyton is celebrated for his role in founding "The Heidelberg Project," an open-air art environment aimed at revitalizing neighborhoods through artistic reclamation—an endeavor that echoes throughout his mixed media creations. "The Heidelberg Pimp" stands as a stark commentary on societal issues related to poverty, neglect, and rebirth through creativity—central themes within Guyton's acclaimed Heidelberg Project. It exemplifies his signature style where abandoned urban objects are repurposed into profound artistic statements. Provenance: Xochipilli Art Gallery, Birmingham, Michigan
