Kris Kuksi (41) is an American artist in the genre of Fantastic Realism. Specializing in creating complex artistic installations, his work has been described as “a study in timelessness and intricacies, reminiscent of lost civilizations, deities and ruins – perfectly preserved.”
Kuksi cuts and reshapes old objects, small toys, mechanical components and other parts and refashions them into works of art that bear little resemblance to the original appearance. A wide range of materials are utilized, including model parts, wood and metal. The artist describes these as ‘mixed media’ that are melded by “a flowing composition and visual balance.” Kuksi’s work often combines images in disconcerting ways, such as “Churchtank” which merges images of religion and warfare.
