Jiri Geller is a quirky Finnish artist with a rather twisted sense of humor. Fixated on iconic characters such as Mickey Mouse and Jesus, these icons are subverted in such a way as to provoke thoughts, encourage conversations and, perhaps, even have a little fun.

Pessimistic yet playful, Jiri Geller's pop-surrealist sculptures are also quite profound. This Helsinki-based artist's work is immersed in his culture, yet it also strives to see the bigger picture. For more images, visit Fubiz.
