I was just recently introduced to the work of artist Misaki Kawai. I must say that my interest in her work has since become something of a creative obsession. Her trippy, child-like figures and animals, painted in the most expressive, perfectly satisfying candy colored hues, are more than enough to send me running for the bag of jelly beans and jolly ranchers hidden in my cupboard. In contrast, Kawai’s seemingly straight-forward subject matter set a perfectly tongue in cheek tone. I’d just love to sink my teeth into her perfectly endearing figures and their omnipresent pets. What more can I possibly say about the wonderful work of Misaki Kawai?
