The work of Seyo Cizmic will have people scratching their heads and chuckling in no time. Surreal and contradictory, the sculptures force people to rethink the obvious in ways that are as challenging as they are entertaining. It is easy to get caught up with everyday routines and mundane objects. Yet Seyo Cizmic encourages people to step outside of their comfort zone in order to enjoy bladed red apples, gumball machine fish tanks and colorful cyclops sunglasses.

Based in San Diego, California, Seyo Cizmic nevertheless manages to confound his audience in playful ways. Beautiful Decay points out, "Within the nonsensical nature of Cizmic’s objects, however, lie larger issues at play. There’s With God on Our Side, a gold-plated sword with a crucifix at the base, joining religious iconography with an image of violence."
