Summary Kris Kuksi's ornate artworks transcend a fine-art gallery context, appealing to a goth, street-culture audience. Using a range of mixed media and unconventional materials, Kuksi builds intricate miniature worlds out of model train kits, army men, jewellery, rocks, trinkets, religious souvenirs, figurines, and ornamental fixtures sourced from all over the world. Each of the delicate and unique assemblages host endless intricate baroque and macabre narratives, reminiscent of lost civilizations, classical sculpture, and fantastic realism. This volume features more than 200 colour reproductions and intricate details of his works.
