Erika Medina’s project-character Bruno is grotesque, yet adorable. He is asymmetrical– with three pupils and only two eyes. He’s got a fetish for ankle boots with mini heels and must spend time in mud or he’d lose his teeth.

Erika is interested in how different cultures imagine and depict the “grotesque”. Meet the many versions of Bruno— inspired by Erika’s description, and incarnated by the pens of artists across the Globe.
