JULY 2011
The Island of Misfit Toys

EMA + ANACOA // The island of Misfit Toys

An exhibition of oil paintings, drawings and original prints

July 8th - 30th, 2011
Preview Evening Thursday 7th July, 6.00 pm

For this new exhibition at APG Works, Parisian artists EMA & 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.
A new series of oil paintings, drawings and screen prints (produced for the show at the APG Works studio) 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.
