The work of Yoan Capote is mostly comprised of surreal everyday sculptures that have political and psychological connotations. On the surface, they artworks encourage people to rethink their natural surroundings as well as the items they use on a daily basis. Yet on a deeper level, the creations embrace the idea of people as individuals, not only how they see the world, but also how they interact with it.

Hailing from Cuba, the young artist focuses on surreal everyday sculptures in very interesting ways. For instance, shoes are impossibly elongated while little figurines are lost in a maze shaped like a brain. In another instance, legs sprout into full trees and suitcases are filled with bricks. These surreal everyday sculptures are playful, provocative and eye opening.
