KATHIE OLIVAS: Miss Fortune: Dorothy Circus Rome | Solo Show

19 Nov - 17 Dec 2022

"I think there is a universal connection to play and curiosity; it’s an escape; it provides a disconnect to the daily stress of adult life. I’m not sure if that’s what others connect to, but for me it was about being able to create my own characters that looked more like me, like a mascot, some sort of inner cheerleader"

A mysterious tale is the one painted by American prime mover of purest pop surrealism, Kathie Olivas, with her new series of unpublished eight canvases named Miss Fortune

Olivas plays hide and seek with the symbology of fortune, conveying signs and secret messages through the folds of bows, ribbons, and laces that distinguish the typical character of the artist, marked by the vintage vibe that has made her work prominent and unique.
The iconic protagonists of Kathie Olivas' work, who already in 2007 were recognised as vinyl figures under the brand Kidrobot, came back more mischievous and delightful than ever to bring a message of positivity and good fortune in a pop-surrealism pattern.
