The toys in the 20/20 series by Lucas Mongiello remind me of the bright-colored plastic toys that were an integral part of my childhood. Displayed in cases normally reserved for dead birds, he showcases these childhood companions in what he described as "surreal collages."

Lucas Mongiello invokes a sense of nostalgia through his works as his series makes use of many different figures that a wide variety of people can relate to. I spotted a Power Ranger action figure that instantly sent my mind whirling back to the 90s.

Take a look at Lucas Mongiello's 20/20 series and see what childhood memories you'll stumble upon.
