Award winner, Kris Kuksi's art has been featured in many galleries and museums including the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. He sold one of his largest piece, "Imminent Utopia" for $100k to Mark Parker, CEO of Nike. When I saw his art at an opening reception, Monsters?and Tin at Copro Gallery. I stood there in awe, studying closely at all the intricate detail and the laborious work, each part of the sculpture is a part of a story. Thoughts roamed my mind, as I ask myself the meaning of the piece. In my opinion, it touches upon political, religious, ethical, and morality.
His partial statement, "In personal reflection, I feel that in the world today much of mankind is often times a frivolous and fragile being driven primarily by greed and materialism. I hope that my art exposes the fallacies of Man, unveiling a new level a awareness to the viewer." His full statement is posted on his website.
