'HICKORY DICKORY DOCK' is the title of MADSAKI's art show. Held at the 'Hidari Zingaro Gallery' in Tokyo, the exhibit explores the artist's ability to transform examples of high-art and themes tied to contemporary society into renditions that are eerily dystopian.
To do this, MADSAKI covers his paintings with dripping smiley faces, his signature. He does this on portraits of Russia's Vladamir Putin and the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo AbeIn. In addition, he adds creepy expressions onto Takashi Murakami’s iconic flower works, and even onto a portrait of Al Pacino in the movie 'Scarface.'
Also incorporated in the HICKORY DICKORY DOCK exhibition are spray-painted designs that speak to current culture's obsession with the Internet and other forms of technology.
