WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT... KRIS KUKSI

Above: Original Sin, 2007, Mixed Media

When we saw Kris Kuksi's work we realised that we had to share it with you as soon as possible. His works are included in many private and public collections and also featured in over 100 national and international exhibitions including those in Austria, Australia, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and The United States. Why is it that he hasn't been exhibited over here since 2003?!

Right before this interview I was… watching The Golden Compass.

If I was in charge, my first law would be... don't mess with things that aren't your belongings.


The Decision, 2007, Mixed Media

The inspiration for my recent work has been… romance beyond the grave.

The number one most annoying law of physics is... temperature.


Laura, 2006, Graphite on claybord

I fought the law and… paid 5 dollars for a parking violation.

Lately, my art has been inspired by... sex, death, politics, religion, war, and taxidermy


The Tower of Babel, 2007, Mixed Media


The starting point for constructing my dioramas/artwork is usually... the flash of a brilliant idea.

The artists I think are worth watching right now are... Greg (Craola) Simkins, Pat Roacha, and Chris Mars.


Anger Monkey, 1999, Acrylic on Canvas

Watch out for the book of Kuksi's work to be published next year. Meanwhile, check out more of his artwork at www.kuksi.com
