Camilla d'Errico finds joy in angst - in shape and in form, in color and in texture – and in the embodiment of passion. She loves capturing the tension, the drama, and the unrest in people’s faces and showing them a reflection of their own deep seated emotions. It is about expressing what they feel and feeling what they express.
Hikari Shimoda Shimoda’s artwork paints a world where cuteness and horror coexist, and fantasy meets reality. She credits the Japanese pop culture she grew up with as the main source of inspiration of her Lowbrow “Irasuto” style, which means artwork made by people inspired by anime and manga. There are often children putting on heroic costumes such as Superman and “shojo” or magical girls, an anime sub-genre of young girls who use magic.
Through depicting children especially, Shimoda reveals the problems people in today’s society struggle with from within. Children possess a simple existence because their identity is ambiguous which provides her with an original point of view.
