From April 16th to May 14th P!Q at Grand Central Station was overtaken by Hello Kitty and her many sanrio companions since. Overcup Press author Naoshi was one of over 100 eminent artists whose artwork was featured at this event. Naoshi is the author of Ice Cream Work which follows the story of Ice Cream Man as he goes from job to job emphasizing the importance of imagination in daily life. Using the Japanese technique of sunae, a process that involves using colored sand, Naoshi is able to bring her unique pieces to life from start to finish.
If you are a fan of Naoshi or Hello Kitty and live in the New York City area you may have seen her at the P!Q store in Grand Central station. If you couldn't make it to the show you can still follow along with the tag on Instagram and see some of the amazing pieces that were on display and for sale. Those who just can’t get enough of Naoshi’s work can also visit the Queen’s Museum and see her recent portrait of seminal punk band, The Ramones as part of the museum’s exhibit, Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk. The exhibit will be on display until July 31st.
