Misaki Kawai

I just realized that I'm supposed to write about art, i haven't really done that at all. About a year ago one of my favourite artists Misaki Kawai exhibited her work at a very good galley here in Stockholm called Loyal. Right now they are showing Matt Leines' watercolor paintings, which I find extremely beautiful and inspiring. I especially like the fact that he's a pro-wrestlilng fan and brings the aesthetics of the wrestling masks and costumes into his art that at the same time reminds me both of orthodox icons and comics ( both avant-garde and regular ones).

Back to Misaki Kawai though, whose fantastic collages you can see here to the left. Her art is both beautiful and funny and I love everything about it. You can and should check out her webpage here. I especially like her fart drawings in which she has completely captured the embarrassment of farting so forcefully that your pants actually rip. ( Has that ever actually happend in real life? Let me know.) Kawai doesn't only do brilliant collages, she aslo does extremely detailed and unreal skulptures and installations. Many of them involve airplanes and surfing.

Not much is going on here in Stockholm. Today at work a very interesting-looking couple bought books from me. The womans' eyes were extremely far apart, and the mans' eyes were very very close together. I thought about that if you were to superimpose their faces, his eyes would fit right in between hers. Also a man who looked like Salvador Dalí bought a book about Salvado Dalí. Ahh, the joys of the bookstore clerk.
