For this new exhibition at A.P.G. Works¬†Parisian artists EMA and 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. New series of oil paintings, drawings and screen prints 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
