Some of the most startling and original images seen on the streets of Santiago, Chile, are the anthropomorphic creatures of artist Basco Vazko. These surreal creatures seem to have lept out of the story of children’s books mixed and cut-up with medical textbook imagery. One of Basco’s strengths is how he uses the weathered walls not as an accidental background for his work but as integral part of the image.
