“Eugenio Merino is a young artist strongly inspired by mass media images, reconfigured in new iconography characterized by acid humor and irony. His sculptures and drawings reflect on the most relevant problems in our society: war, pollution, exploitation, religion power. Merino’s work doesn’t want to be critic, but embodies the double standard morals that permeate our present time, from its private incarnations to the macro-political architecture of global westernization. Through popular characters coming from the politic or the entertainment world, like Homer Simpson, Bin Laden, George Bush, Dalai Lama, Merino invites us not to forget the irony in tragedy and what’s bad and wicked in some media representations.

His creative praxis and his control upon the image-phrase, moves between two register: a dialectical approach, to reveal the secret of the heterogeneous through collision, and a symbolic approach, to produce allegories through building up scenarios.”

Yeah that.
