art on foam
The work and profiles of all of the artists can be seen at the link above.
The exhibition illustrates a phenomena that I have been observing amongst group shows of this kind.
Firstly there is a distinct "style" that is required that is rooted in pop art and cartoons.
Secondly there is a token female presence. There will be one female who is also working in a distinct , but "girly" style and is often the girlfriend of one of the male 'stars'.
The dolls, or underground toy characters are usually made by the women and the robotic figures by the men.
