Kris Kuksi: The Art of the Grotesque

Kris Kuksi is a Kansas artist who quite obviously has an extremely strong distaste for the stereotypical images of American life and pop culture, feeling that he has instead always belonged to the “Old World.” His “grotesque” works of art are about a new wilderness, refined and elevated, visualized as a cultivation emerging from the corrupt and demoralized fall of modern-day society. Kuksi’s art conjures up places where new beginnings, new wars, new philosophies, and new endings exist.

Kuksi feels that in the world today, much of mankind is too often comprised of merely frivolous and fragile beings driven primarily by greed and materialism. His twisted and distorted art is aimed at exposing the fallacies of contemporary man, which he hopes might suggest a new order of awareness to the viewer. Kuksi’s work has received several awards and prizes and has been featured in over 100 exhibitions in galleries and museums worldwide, including at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. His art can also be seen in a number of international art magazines, book covers and theatrical posters. Kris’ art is featured in both public and private collections in the United States, Europe and Australia.
