Holy Bleeeep, Master Artist Kris Kuksi Sent Me a Package...

And here's what was inside! 
Not sure if this guy has a name or a title but was definitely not expecting to receive such an incredible original Kuksi in the mail.  

A little back story, about 2 years ago Kris Kuksi and I exchanged art prints. He sent me a print of his absolutely stunning piece Triumph and then I returned the favor by giving him one of my fine art photography prints.

Well, forward two years later (can't believe how fast time flies) and he kindly sent me this guy in the mail to my absolute surprise!
Upon receiving the package I was overwhelmed with feverish excitment and shock!  I of course took pictures before even opening the box and then each layer of packaging thus to pull out this incredible soldier.

Upon removing the outer clear case I enjoyed the faint scent of paint that wafted off the piece and looking at all the tiny little objects and symbols about the sculpture.

To my shock and delight I realized I finally have a Kris Kuksi that I own and can delicately touch!  All the Kuksi pieces I have seen have all been in galleries and we know touching is not allowed. 

This has been a dream of mine for years and years to own an original Kris Kuksi!!!

I'm still in delightful madness and shock.

Now all I have to do is make enough money to own bigger and bigger Kuksi artworks!
If you have never seen his extremely delicate and intricate work especially in person you are missing out and need to see it as soon as possible.

Kris Kuksi's collector list is extremely impressive, such collectors as Mark Parker (Nike CEO), Kay Alden (actress and writer), Chris Weitz (movie director The Golden Compass & Star Wars Rogue One), Guillermo del Toro (movie director Pan’s Labyrinth & Crimson Peak) and Robin Williams (Academy Award and Golden Globe winning actor) to name a few.

If you are on the east coast Kris Kuksi is having a solo exhibition in NYC this Fall at the Joshua Liner Gallery

So mark your calendars!
