Argentine artist, San Poggio’s sur­re­al­ist works and real­is­tic ren­der­ings leave lit­tle to the imag­i­na­tion with the bizarre scenery, happenings and situations that are laid out in the intricate settings. There are behead­ings and strug­gles, collections and a little bit of obsessive compulsion in Poggio’s masterful illustrations and paintings.

We first saw the Ulysses series by Miles Donovan in London back in 2013 and thought we would take a look back at the fantastic collages, a “series of images from the missing space probe Ulysses.” Great collage ideas, juxtaposing images of deep space with those of both the common tourist and street scenes. Perhaps we will see some space tourists in 2014…

Milos “Sholim” Rajkovic is like a Belgradian anti-war Terry Gilliam, who produces the most remarkable surreal animations made from decomposed heads — authority figures like generals and ranking clerics are a favorite — filled with weird gears, fleshy pulsing puckers, crazy clocks, tiny frantic people, and more. I could watch this stuff all day long.

Over the weekend, Saner opened his newest exhibition “El Cenit Del Venado” at Fifty24MX Gallery in Mexico City. This new body of work consisted of acrylic paintings, ink drawings and sculptures, all presented in a dim lit setting. Saner wrote about the exhibition saying, “The zenith refers to the time when the sun and the moon aligns in the sky above us, and it´s used as a metaphor of those instants where the human being is able to get out of the daily routine and be present, being able to connect with the Great Spirit.”

The all-popular Mr. Potato Head gets a fantastic makeover with Melbourne-based artist Stephen Ives series of sculptures, “Mr. Dictator Head.” The artist’s other plastic toy figures are often humorous, sometimes disturbing (as re-assembled toys often are) and always imaginative and inspired.

Not that we want to deter you from looking at these images, but no picture will do this exhibition justice. I can go on and on about how intriguing the work is, how the Chapman brothers have perhaps made the biggest noise during Basel week in Hong Kong, but even that would not give enough credit to how incredible the diorama pieces of The Sum of All Evil really are.
