The art of Kris Kuksi

Kris Kuksi could easily be the master of mixed media. He uses "things" - pre-fabricated things, mass-produced things, kitschy or weird stuff, injection-molded or press-molded objects. Likened to Hieronymous Bosch or Lovecraft, Kuksi explores fear and the illusions created by the mind. See more on his website and check out the interview on Dark Roasted Blend.


The Tower of Babel


The Deadly Sins detail


A New Divinity

Mixed media is a very simplified term for what materials I use, but the list would be to long for this interview. I use "things". These things are pre-fabricated, injection-molded, press-molded, mass-produced, kitschy, weird stuff all brought together in a very articulated way that involves imagination, skill, math, craftsmanship, paint, and lastly, magic.
