Virginia Vargas - Pokemon
The artwork Pokemon, made by Virginia Vargas, is part of a limited black and white series, in which the artist proposes deeply realistic images related to contemporary life, exotic cultures and folklore. Showing her refined artistic skills, Vargas illustrates a Japanese ordinary life scene. The partial view is devoted to the portrait of two figures that embody a branch of the Japanese contemporary custom. In particular, the painter decides to give us a subway glimpse of a man wearing a mask (most people in towns and trains use to wear “medical” masks in Japan, especially for sanitary reasons) and a kid holding a Pikachu doll, probably one of the most celebrated Japanese millennials’ icons.
