32 year old Brazilian artist Fernando de la Rocque creates art with marijuana smoke by repeatedly blowing the smoke at a piece of paper with a stencil taped to it, even though smoking marijuana is illegal in Brazil.
The artist from Rio de Janeiro stumbled on this technique in 2009 and he has been using the same technique ever since, and why not, some of Rocque’s pot-stained prints are selling for $2,500 each.
It takes him a week to do a single print — blowing about five joints of smoke onto a paper daily.
At his studio in Rio de Janeiro on Monday, Fernando de la Rocque took a deep drag on a marijuana joint and blew onto a stencil overlaying paper. After several puffs an image began to appear — a golden-hued version of “Ecstasy of Saint Teresa” by Italian sculptor Giovanni Lorenzo.
