Kris Kutsi

Via Neil Gaiman on Twitter, I have just found another artist who, for me, instantly ranks alongside the brilliant Dave McKean. Kris Kuksi remodels plastic toys into grotesque but oh-so-intricate and incredibly beautiful pieces of art—you can see lots of them on his website, and a few of my favourites below.

The Beast of Babylon


Plague Parade Opus 1


The Temptation of St Anthony


Caravan Assault Apparatus


Brilliant.

Getting into Giger territory there.

Kuksi knows his baroque, and can do things with toy soldiers and poly cement that make most modellers chew their toes off in envy.

I think they`re rubbish. Then again I am a philistine who hates modern art and thinks Piccasso is an over rated, over adulated talantless half wit.

That's why your name is Robin.

Could you change your format slightly and show dates in the British/European format rather than the less logical US format ?

No obvious criticism of Capitalism or the United States there, so he'll go precisely nowhere.
