Ub Yifu
In his first life, Ub Yifu is a French painter and webmaster. Active in Second Life since May, 2007, he has established himself as one of the two or three finest sculptors in that online virtual world. Using primitive graphical elements, some of which come off the SL shelf, and some of which he himself makes off-world, Ub began his career as a virtual sculptor by creating three dimensional versions of paintings by Matisse, Magritte, Picasso, Dali, and Degas. His avatar, a three dimensional version of Picasso’s Don Quixote, is a famous and easily recognized participant in the Second Life art scene. His sculptures. many commissioned as unique pieces, are now permanently installed in various urban and national sims, including those of Spain, Belgium, Germany, Israel, Rio de Janeiro, and New York City.
