The Alienating Mixed-Media Work of Guim Tió Zarraluki

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Based in Barcelona, Spanish artist Guim Tió Zarraluki experiments with the communicative power of the eyes. His figures stare blankly into space with their doll-like, button-shaped pupils, confusing the viewer’s emotional compass. These figures are like automata from a 19th-century sci-fi novel, playing with the boundary between the human and the artificial. Tió dabbles in photography as well as mixed-media painting with ink and wax, achieving a similarly alienating effect in various media. Take a look at some of his work below.
