Alex Kuno is a full-time artist and illustrator living and working in Lowertown, Saint Paul, MN, and is currently represented by Gallery 360 in Minneapolis and Curly Tale Fine Art in Chicago, IL. His work has been exhibited in galleries around the United States, Rome and Milan, profiled on mnoriginal.org, hifructose.com, Vice.com and juxtapoz.com and he maintains a growing list of commission clients and private collectors around the world.
Offal, Kuno’s new series of surreal anatomical illustrations, is a more direct and intimate response to the incessant unveiling of political, cultural and environmental mutations. Partly inspired by vintage medical and botanical illustrations, the characters that have populated his past work for years are now seen going through their own sudden, peculiar changes. The characters are in a state of flux; what caused these changes and what their finals forms will be are mysteries, but we're allowed for a moment to pause and appreciate the absurdities of the present state of things.
