Richie Fahey favourites are back in at Atomica!

New York artist Richie Fahey has been a firm favourite since we opened; his prints practically flew off the walls and we sold out in no time at all! So you’ll be happy to know that we now have all of his old favourites, such as ‘Poolside’ and ‘Buddha Boogie’, back in stock at the gallery. We’ve also increased our selection to include several different works of his ‘beautiful women gone bad and the men who love them’.

Atomica Gallery, in association with Comica Festival, are proud to announce “Belle: The Art of Junko Mizuno”, a retrospective solo exhibition from celebrated Japanese artist Junko Mizuno. Bringing together a collection of original paintings, rare limited edition prints, iconic gig silk-screen posters and other works from throughout her esteemed career, “Belle” is the first ever showing of Mizuno’s work in London and a rare opportunity for British audiences to view and purchase work from the cult artist.

Born in Japan and currently residing in San Francisco, Mizuno is a self-taught artist who is recognized for her unique style of powerful and erotic female imagery. Juxtaposing childlike cuteness and horror, her psychedelic female characters exude positive energy and playful sexuality. Submerged in 70s Japanese cute-culture whilst growing up in Tokyo, Mizuno is also inspired by countless other pop-cult sources including toys, comics, food and music, as well as fetish, folk and religious art.

An accomplished manga graphic novelist, Mizuno has published numerous books including surreal two-volume graphic novel Little Fluffy Gigolo Pelu. She has created concert artwork for bands such as The Melvins, Faith No More, Mudhoney and Swans, designed vinyl figures for KidRobot (including ‘Kuro Migami’ which is included in this exhibition) and animated the titles for Jonathan Ross's BBC TV series Japanorama. Her artwork has been exhibited in galleries worldwide including in LA, New York, Toronto, Tokyo, Paris, Milan, Barcelona, Berlin, and Rome and has featured in several influential art publications including the front cover of Hi-Fructose magazine.

Mizuno will also be appearing at an exclusive Comica Festival speaking and book signing event, ‘Junko Mizuno: Mistress of Creepy Manga’, in conversation with artist Jason Atomic, taking place at Foyles Bookshop (Charing Cross Road, London) on Wednesday 22nd October 2014.
