Victor Hugo Rojas (1942–1993) was a Venezuelan born American artist, window dresser, and partner of the designer Halston. Hugo did displays for Halston’s Madison Avenue store and later became one of Andy Warhol’s assistants at The Factory where among other things he worked on the painter’s oxidation paintings. He is said to have been the first window dresser to have incorporated Pop art into his designs. He was also a model for Warhol’s torso series. In 1978 the artist and videographer Anton Perich made a short film of Hugo destroying a Warhol painting as “a sacrifice”. In September of 2007 an exhibition of mannequins dressed by Hugo (from Warhol’s collection) was held at the Milk Gallery in New York City. (source: Wikipedia)
