'The Whereabouts of God #3' - @hikarishimoda.
I love this piece, I love it and wish so desperately that I could own it. It’s so beautiful. It is serene yet disquieting. I’m almost at a loss for words, because I look at it with a deep sigh, like my soul just falls in love with this little demon every time. I love that there are dark elements mixed with the stickers. Hikari has the most perfect sense of neutral colours mixed with vivid colours. There’s such a beautiful blending of the two that it does disquiet and at the same time it makes you feel peaceful and happy.
@camilladerrico has TAKEN OVER beautiful.bizarre socials, check in all day to see some of her favourite pieces!

My art is on @creators_project blog today! Link in bio! πŸ‘† The article takes a cool look 😍 at my two main series, "Whereabouts of God" and "Children of This Planet":
"Hikari Shimoda imbues Japanese Pop with a deep existential anxiety to reveal her true feelings about society.
Inspired by Japanese pop culture, hyper-colored, starry-eyed portraits juxtapose dark themes of horror and loneliness in artist Hikari Shimoda's two series on Chernobyl, the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and existential anxiety, Whereabouts of God and Children of This Planet."

New cuteness! πŸ’˜ I just posted a video of my progress in my story feed. 🀘

Today is #InternationalWomensDay ! In my recent solo show #MementoMori @coreyhelfordgallery it was important to me to represent women of different nationalities. I have previously painted women in my work as strong magical girls on a mission to save humanity.
@icanvas_art x National Museum of Women in the Arts have teamed up with contemporary female artists including myself to spread awareness of women in the arts. I'm proud to support this campaign to help eliminate the gap! Can you name #5WomenArtists? Let me know in the comments below! My top 5 are: Loretta Lux, Bjork, Yayoi Kusama, Masako Ando, Kimichi Nishiki

Getting to work on some new pieces! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ First step☝️ background layer! πŸ’—

My show #MementoMori @coreyhelfordgallery has ended but you can now browse all of the pieces online at their website at CoreyHelfordGallery.com. This is my painting "Death and Angel" #3 , oil on canvas, 18"x21".
My new works depict god-like characters who offer us relief. As human beings, we attack each other, make enemies, and so I surround them with angels of death. Also, there are children of various races in my new paintings. I wanted to draw upon a theme that was not specific to any race or country, but a theme that relates to the whole world. πŸŒŽπŸ’˜
To inquire, please email the gallery at sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com.

I'm so happy that you guys are liking my new canvas prints by @icanvas_art! @2henl just picked up "Children of this Planet" #26 . 🌎 Thanks for posting this!πŸ’• You can check out all of my prints on their site at www.icanvas.com - and stay tuned for prints of my new paintings to be released soon! I currently have new portraits available through @coreyhelfordgallery. To inquire about my artwork, please email the gallery at sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com.

Making some progress with this one today. This composition will feature multiple figures in the Christian angelic hierarchy. The girl and surrounding characters wear 6 wings to represent the seraphim, a celestial being with the fiery passion to do God's good work. ✨

Happy #LoveYourPetDay πŸΆπŸ’˜ and another day of me putting things on Momo's head πŸ˜‚

Today is the last day to check out my show #MementoMori @coreyhelfordgallery!! Here's a full look at my oil painting "Whereabouts of God" #27 - I just posted some more images in my story feed. 🀘
"Whereabouts of God" is an onoing series begun after the Great East Japan Earthquake and accident of Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant of 2011. No one knows if Fukushima’s children will wear a "Fukushima necklace", similar to the Chernobyl necklace, in the future or not, and the possibility shouldn’t be ruled out. So, I painted these scars as warnings about the future, while the twinkling stars around the scar represent my personal, happier wishes for our future. I have expanded on this series to include characters of multiple races.
Thank you to everyone at the gallery for their hard work, and to those who have already stopped by & for all of your nice comments! I wish I could reply to them all! ❀ If you haven't seen the show yet and you are in the #LA area, the gallery closes at 6pm today.
