The Andy Warhol Tribute
Hyper realistic artist Eugenio Merino stuns the New York scene with his life sized sculpture of Andy Warhol. Embalmed at the Unix gallery the Warhol tribute sculpture is an eerie presence to the hall of mortuary presentation. Previously featuring “Here Died Picasso,” gathered more than 20,000 to the Alliance Française in Málaga last year.
Merino's work is truly amazing while his subject matter may be seen as a hint of death worshiping to the once king of contemporary art and others of culture controversy. The Warhol tribute will be on display at the UNIX Gallery till: June 8th 2018

"Kuksi’s Baroque confections treat history as primordial soup — a burbling stew of thrilling highlights and epic tragedies that not only resonate in the mind’s eye but also inspire all sorts of emotions — good, bad and otherwise."
- Los Angeles Times
The sculpture hangs on the wall: a sprawling world, a warning, a revelation, a vision of a collective soul. From afar, the composition is what is striking, formally balanced, playful yet contained and graceful. It beckons, drawing the viewer into its tangle of meaning, history unfolding in its depths and reverence discovered within the assortment of invented iconography. This sculpture has it all--imagined conquests, sex and death, a hero’s hubris-filled demise, navel gazing and oblivion, tragic characters reliving the mistakes humanity continues to make, the quest, the vision, the warrior, the prophet, the mystic, the child—archetypes that you attach to, project yourself onto, archetypes that litter history and continue to fascinate in different contexts. This sculpture is a whole new framework for something that feels entirely too familiar. The closer the viewer moves, the more entranced they become. The intricate details of the assemblage bring to life the nuances of the narrative, and it becomes clear, that every one of the thousands of pieces within was chosen, plucked from this vast world of material objects, and placed with intention in the context of the sculpture. Though thousands of decisions were made for this one sculpture, they unify in a lucid, baroque harmony.
Kris Kuksi’s process is entirely his own. It starts with the spark of an idea usually encountered in the early hours of the morning when the work is humming, some flotsam rising up from his rich personal history, usually something iconoclastic, earnest, and loaded with paradox. He’ll catch a glimpse and the image will burn itself into his mind long enough for him to bring it into existence.
“The sculptures take hours, weeks, and sometimes months to complete and sometimes
I work fourteen to sixteen hours a day, but it all seems to go by so fast.”
Sculptor of Ages
Yayoi Kusama, (born March 22, 1929, Matsumoto, Japan), Japanese artist who was a self-described “obsessional artist,” known for her extensive use of polka dots and for her infinity installations. She employed painting, sculpture, performance art, and installations in a variety of styles, including Pop art and Minimalism.
By her own account, Kusama began painting as a child, at about the time she began experiencing hallucinations that often involved fields of dots. Those hallucinations and the theme of dots would continue to inform her art throughout her career. She had little formal training, studying art only briefly (1948–49) at the Kyōto City Specialist School of Arts. Family conflict and the desire to become an artist drove her to move in 1957 to the United States, where she settled in New York City. Before leaving Japan, she destroyed many of her early paintings.
Her early work in New York City included what she called “infinity net” paintings. Those consisted of thousands of tiny marks obsessively repeated across large canvases without regard for the edges of the canvas, as if they continued into infinity. Such works explored the physical and psychological boundaries of painting, with the seemingly endless repetition of the marks creating an almost hypnotic sensation for both the viewer and the artist. Her paintings from that period anticipated the emerging Minimalist movement, but her work soon transitioned to Pop art and performance art. She became a central figure in the New York avant-garde, and her work was exhibited alongside that of such artists as Donald Judd, Claes Oldenburg, and Andy Warhol.
