Works Cited Exhibition @ myplasticheart

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

Works Cited Exhibition“Work Cited” is a group exhibition inspired by children’s literature, curated by Studio Miners, opening on Friday April 11.

In this exhibition, I’ve painted ‘Momotaro’ from memory, a Japanese folk tale about a boy who was born from a giant peach, and his journey of fighting monsters in a distant island, where he met some new animal friends who helped Momotaro in his quest. It’s one of most unique and creative children’s story I’ve read, and probably the most memorable one, as there are all sorts of products for it, I was really into it when I was a kid, remember saw the Momotaro movie, cartoon, played its own video game, and even till today I still check out its ever growing related products.
