The strange children of Hikari Shimoda

2015-07-31 // art featured japan

A selection of the paintings by Japanese artist Hikari Shimoda, who features strange children through colorful compositions but deceptively childlike. Between the childhood naivety, the myth of Japanese magical girls, the fear of growing up and the loss of innocence in the transition to adulthood, Hikari Shimoda reveals a complex series of portraits, hiding the harsh of the reality of our world behind the imaginary universe of childhood.
