The Visual Puns by Toni Spyra art installation gives the viewer a look at the way everyday objects modify our lives. The German artist is currently based in Austria, giving thought-provoking impulse to his Visual Puns artwork. He uses everyday objects in his artwork to create a sense of familiarity. However, with a second glance at the objects, one can realized that they are then transported into the artist's own concerns on social problems.

Images of Visual Puns by Toni Spyra include cement sandals, hair flowing out of a bucket, the McDonald's golden arches lighting a candle stick, a never-ending escalator and a diving board in the middle of a playground. Take how you will the social problems Toni Spyra is portraying, however, the artist has a powerful message between the cracks.
