"Have you been left behind?" That's the question spelled out in pink paint on one of these colorful creations by artist duo Asgar/Gabriel. They remind me of some weird but lovely, mutated explosion of graffiti and teenage youth parties.

The artists, Daryoush Asgar and Elisabeth Gabriel, create works that are like anti-worlds, with scenes of popular culture morphed into hedonistic kicks of escapism.

These vibrant paintings are exhibited at PULSE Miami 2008 at the Galerie Ernst Hilger/hilger contemporary from December 4 to 7th along with many other artworks.
