STAY STRANGE is proud to present – I EAT PEOPLE: Children’s Monster Art.
Saturday, November 16 – 7 PM at the Space 4 Art classroom – FREE!!
Monstrous creature art from ages 3-13. All mediums will be represented; drawings, paintings, sculpture, photography, music and video.
My nephew Elijah was the original inspiration for this event. We would get together on weekends and draw these wonderfully grotesque monsters. At the time, Elijah was only 5 years old, yet he had this wild and extravagant imagination. We were going to put together an exhibit and show of his creepy creations. He even named the exhibit: I Hate Humans! Unfortunately the project never materialized and lay dormant until now.
I used one of my nephew’s monsters from that time period for the I EAT PEOPLE poster. He called it Cacon Bunney (Cocoon Bunny). At the exhibit, you’ll see the original artwork from that time period as well as his most recent designs. He’ll be at the exhibit. Perhaps you can meet him and he’ll draw you a one of a kind monster!
Having a child of my own solidified the fact that a child’s imagination is one of the greatest gifts ever. To see my son make his own beastly creations made this project even more special. I am very honored to be able to show other children’s artwork that shared the same vision as my nephew and son. I thank them and their parents.
The rules for submissions were simple! MONSTERS, MONSTERS and more MONSTERS!! A child’s interpretation and definition of what a monster is and can be simply amazed me. I can’t wait for all of you to see them as well. THIS WILL BE HORRIFYING!
