The message behind Kris Kuksi's art.

Sometimes you find something on the web (like this guy's artwork) and you just want to pass it on to the people you know who would appreciate it--you! In this case, that would be the mixed media sculptural work of Kris Kuksi. Kuksi's work is deep and dark, constructed from random objects like toys and mechanical parts. While some of the elements are bought new, Kuksi also finds himself in antique stores 'reclaiming' the old for his masterpieces. But what's even more compelling is the inspiration and conception behind some of his pieces--as Kuksi put it in an e-mail to me, "they are social commentary about what the future would be like if man isn't careful with the environment." His art has been featured worldwide and can also be found in many private collections such as those of Nike CEO Mark Parker and musician Fred Durst. Check out his site to see them closer up.
