"La Madone du Quartier Haut" 1992
Sculpture of Richard di Rosa (say Buddy)

Richard di Rosa was born in Sète in 1963.
He receives the nickname of Buddy, in reference to Buddy Holly, and of the music which it made with his friends before starting a career of sculptor. It is described like a cultivated autodidact, fascinated as well by Celine, Topor or Arrabal. It finds its inspiration in people, daily life, its imaginary and its meetings.
(... In 92, I made a sculpture where I was born, where my father was born, or my large father has immigrant. I was on the aircraft with the mayor of Sète, I said to him: " make me make some thing for my city, I never did anything! ", and he told me " ok ! Make a sculpture for the "Haut Quartier"". I created " La Madone du Haut Quartier" and that gave me super pleasure, parce that it is the place or I had my first
emotions, place my district... ")
Richard di Rosa makes an international career.

Note: The Madonna, very impudic and provocative seems to wait can be the arrival of sailors sunken to the port. But it is not given easily to the photographer, bus surrounded of electric cars, buildings, posts, wire, from where a very tight framing.
