1. Kris Kuksi

    One of the most striking features of Kuksi’s work is how vastly intricate each of his sculptures are, often exploring grand themes of religion or politics, mixing these with Baroque and modern elements. Created from a multitude of figures and pieces, Kuksi will spend many hours patiently creating each sculpture. His meticulous process involves spending time collecting each individual plastic figurine before cutting and manipulating each piece in order to bring them together within his final sculptures. The results are breathtaking. Each sculpture beckons the viewer to become lost in the mass of amalgamated scenes being played out before their eyes, making Kuksi’s unique creations a trademark style that has enraptured the world.

    On closer inspection it’s clear there is more to the scenes Kuksi puts together. With a larger focal point such as the ancient gods and goddesses within shrine-like surroundings, the viewer is first hit with an initial reaction to the scenes they portray. Often, the darker undertones creep out within his tiny figurines – the guns they hold take the spotlight, the chains rise to become the focus. Kuksi’s shares his view of the world, and we are invited in. Kuksi’s biography reads:

    In personal reflection, Kris feels that in the world today much on mankind is oftentimes frivolous and fragile, being driven primarily by greed and materialisation. He hopes that his art exposes the fallacies of Man, unveiling a new level of awareness to the viewer.
