Cica @ Nitroglobus Gallery

NNG Cica 1

Last night my fabulous friends Dido and Nitro hosted a pre-new years eve party at their gallery. It was wonderful as always to see both new and familiar faces pop by to join in the fun. While dancing the night away we were surrounded by an absolutely spectacular art installation from the talented Cica Ghost.

As I said last night, walking into the gallery is like being transported into drawing. It reminded me a little bit of a scene from a movie I have fond memories of from my childhood, only without the bright colours. At one point in Mary Poppins Bert, Mary, Michael and Jane all jump into a chalk drawing done by a London street artist and 'live' inside the picture for a while, riding carousel horses in a race, meeting and dancing with penguins and a whole bunch of other fun stuff.

During a visit to the Nitroglobus Gallery you'll find yourself  completely immersed in the art. Everywhere you look you'll see animated images of stick figures, animals, flowers and trees that all seem to have their own little story. There is a man playing music in the wind, a cat sitting by a tree, a little guy riding a push bike and so, so much more. I didn't know where to look first!

If I were to recommend artists I've come across in Second Life so far Cica would be right up there in the top handful. I can't speak highly enough of the simplistic style that gives a sense of being so much more complex and 'deep' than it appears at first glance. I was completely captivated during my visit yesterday watching the dancing flowers which I think have to be my favourite bit.

If you find yourself at a loose end any time soon I really really recommend a visit to go and see Cica Ghost's "Pieces of Cica" installation at the Nitroglobus Gallery.

Wishing you a happy and prosperous new year,
Until next time,
Kooky.
