Aychak Man

He created this character after meeting up with his friend who said “aych ya man“ which translates into “what’s up man“. The clash of cultures and the paradox of the two words strike Roger De Tanios’s interest. He wanted to siphon that oxymoron and turn it into something more concrete and visible. This collection depicts the way a traditional “macho“ man is wired.

The sculptures come in many shapes, sizes, and materials and all portray an incognito bulked-up individual tied all around. The visible paradox of a hero-like figure tangled by its values, morals and ethics piqued the interest of numerous art critics.

His artwork goes even deeper and can be interpreted as an epitome for the dilemma every human goes through. Lust or Reason?
