Monkey Magic by Christina Pavlo

Currently unavailable for purchase

Soft pastel and acrylic paint on Canaletto paper; 100cm x 70cm

Monkey Magic was created after researching on 1950s toys, and obsolete and kitsch objects. I was surprised to find that the sock monkey was amongst many of the classic toys that have become forgotten over the years, thus this work was sort of created with sympathy and dedication.

I changed the Magic 8 Ball into a Magic 13 Ball because I wanted to make a reference to the various comics, horror movies, and several Pop Surreal and Lowbrow artworks.

Ambidextrous, geeky, plays drums, somewhat hedonistic and misanthropic, art over-enthusiast, Filipino/Greek descent, collector of kitsch and useless decor.
