Nostalgia always hits hard and in an age where toys are becoming less and less of a factor for modern children, seeing old-school toys is a welcome treat. This art exhibit, entitled Nostalgia, uses the subject of many's childhood affection and turns it into a feeling-fueled display of modern art.
Shows like He-Man and Sailor Moon may not be comfortably sitting in the public eye like they used to, but they still hold a place as pop culture royalty (as they should). This art exhibit is a group effort featuring over 20 artists and will display the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco.
Using powerful colors and strange juxtaposition, these images put an interesting twist on the old-school toys and games we all know and love.
