Alex Kisilevich is a Toronto-based artist whose work uses dark, surrealist elements to create images that convey feelings of isolation and detachment, as well as humor.

For his MFA Thesis and latest gallery presentation, Alex Kisilevich is presenting 'Kallima,' a series of images that seeks to "explore the notions of camouflage within a contemporary and social context by investigating the function of mimicry in the natural world and the ways in which it can be mirrored in human behavior." The result is stunning, with an array of complex and unforgettable images like a woman’s face obscured by her hair or a monster on the wall comprised of weeds and colorful flowers.

If you’re in Toronto and want to unravel the mystery, you can view Alex Kisilevich's 'Kallima' exhibit in person at the Angell Gallery from May 5th to June 11th, 2011.
