Philippines native Kiko Capile draws surreal, writhing distortions on the human form. The artist’s stirring scenes move between elegant and horror-driven mutations. The artist often shares process photos of these drawings on his Instagram account.
Chet Zar, a painter, digital animator, and make-up effects artist, brings his dark, dystopic vision to Copro Gallery with the solo exhibition “DY5TOPIA.” Running through Nov. 5, the exhibition transforms the entire gallery to match the doom and gloom of Zar’s bizarre world of monsters. Yet, unlike other fictional worlds, the monsters and creatures in Zar’s images are sometimes suffering, fearful, or in a broader state of anxiety. Zar was last featured on HiFructose.com here, as part of his 3D group exhibition “Conjoined.”
