20 Surreal Art Sculptures from Modern Baroque Genius Kris Kuksi
Modern sculpture can rarely be described as colorful, yet the intricate and ornate plastic statues by Missouri-born artist Kris Kuksi are just that. Using monochrome plastic as his trusted medium, Kuksi forges surreal art that draws you into his distinct world of bestial animal-faced military, structures in a state of crumbling majesty, and mythical divinity. How do you not find color in that? Many of his works offer the unmistakable face of death grinning forth from a sprawling Baroque nightmare while others glow with a natural grace and divinity. Objects and entities from seemingly opposing dimensions are fused together in Kuksi’s tangible dreams. You can easily get lost in these sculptures, silently calling from gallery walls. Kuksi may be most notable for turning the head of Guillermo del Toro, a director known for his partiality to monster magic, but the bewitching detail and pure undiluted vision in Kuksi’s work finds it speaking elegantly for itself.
