Preview: Hikari Shimoda at DMO Arts

Known for her grotesque yet fantastical portraits of children, Japanese artist Hikari Shimoda will debut a solo show at DMO Arts in Osaka on June 26. For this new series of paintings and collages, Shimoda focuses on childrens’ idealism and desire to save the world. “In recent work, Hero or Magical girl is painted as the main motif. It is the metaphor of the Savior for the present young people,” said Shimoda. “The horns of the child having in works express their feelings cannot be into words.” Take a look at some of Shimoda’s works for the show, images courtesy of DMO Arts, and see the exhibition June 26 through July 16.
