Spanish artist Eugenio Merino makes a point with his ironic but humorous sculptures. Clearly influenced by the history of his own country, he’s found a way of dealing with it and at the same time exploring global issues like religion, war and poverty, always putting his finger on the tender spots. His work shows the sad side of this world´s society and politics in a most humorous way.
