Kris Kuksi: Toyart & Churchtanks

Kris Kuksi is an American artist who is famous for his signature sculptures, which he modestly labels as being comprised of “mixed media assemblage”.

Kris Kuksi’s Beautiful Art is Made From the Bones of Dead Model Kits. What he actually means is “made out of the pieces of seemingly unrelated model kits”. Go on, take a closer look. While from a distance the pieces appear to be a mish-mash of romantic and apocalyptic imagery, zoom in and you’ll see the intricate detail is made up of things like pieces of old machinery, miniatures of Napoleonic soldiers and the pieces of World War Two battleships. Kuksi’s art is highly sought-after; some of the people who own a piece include the boss of Nike, Guillermo Del Toro and Robin Williams.

Kris Kuksi do this intricate sculptures that result from his unique and meticulous technique. A process that requires countless hours to assemble, collect, manipulate, cut, and re-shape thousands of individual parts. I’m usually not into this genre, but I really really like the one fourth from the top.

Hieronymus Bosch of the day! - This is what I imagine Hell to be like. Fantastic details!
