Twisted Art from Robert Gligorov

Shocking photography is artist Robert Gligorov’s specialty. He was born in 1959 in Kriva Palanca, Macedonia and now resides in Milan, Italy. Although Gligorov's work is unexpected, there is a comical aspect to his work that made me burst out in laughter when I saw the images in the gallery above.

The man diving into a splash of water in the floor boards is just amazing. The man dipping his head in a fish tank, on the other hand, is freakishly bizarre. And the budgie as a bull's eye target is just so cruel it hurts my guts.

The artist’s aim is to ignite the imagination of the viewer, thereby awakening us from a state of slumber. Gligorov wishes to visually confront us and is competing with the sophisticated visual communication of the media world to shock and stun his audience. I think you can safely say that he does that convincingly. Stats for Illusory Shocktography Trending: Older & Warm
