The Island of Misfit Toys
An Exhibition of Oil Paintings, Drawings, & Original Screen Prints
July 8th - 30th, 2011 - Preview Evening Thursday 7th July, 6.00 pm
For this new exhibition at APG Works, Parisian artists EMA & ANACAO explore the contrast between dark and cute in a fantastic world.
The Island of Misfit Toys represents a gloomy universe populated by vintage, romantic and strange toys inspired by Japanese pop animation, 70's science fiction and graffiti.
A new series of oil paintings, drawings and screen prints (produced for the show at the APG Works studio) introduce us to an island of monstrous squids, half-human half-beast hybrids and muscular super heroes lost in a cataclysmic atmosphere of falling meteorites and floral patterns.
Below is a preview of some of the images from the show - (the size of the images as displayed does not reflect the relative sizes of the actual prints - please take note of the figured dimensions)
