Childhood memory, a beautiful ingredient in life

Sometimes we wish we could take a single childhood memory and blow it up into a bubble and live inside it forever. As children, we took pleasure in small things, even when the bigger things crumbled. When we were children we seldom thought of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can, a method for us to maintain solid and pure in an increasingly hostile world.

Works by Cristiana Cerretti are fantastic little melodies, they are like childhood memories that stay with you your entire life. In contrast, Emily Lau‘s paintings are virtuosos of the imagination, they are unkempt and adventurous, like stories within a story. A Chasing Game is full of surprises, with both glorious and disheartening ingredients. We love the non-conventional illustrations by Max Grunfeld, she’s so young yet so wise and contemplative. With her humor and nonchalant touch, her little tales contain cheeky commentaries on life and growing up.

And now, let the wild rumpus start!
