Alex Kuno created a series of interwoven, darkly satirical fairy tale vignettes in his work The Miscreants of Tiny Town. This series presents the trials and tribulations of wayward children in various forms through mixed media paintings on hand-carved pieces of wood, drawings on paper, sculpture and installation. These pieces are playful investigations of longings, fears and dark stories from childhood that have shaped our adult anxieties and understanding of the real-world, large-scale cultural, economic and environmental change.
