Backpacking with a Book

Charlie Co’s Orange Gallery

Gen, who charted this trip, said we would visit Mikiboy’s and Nonon’s art exhibit at Orange Gallery. Now, when I think of Mikiboy’s works, images of pig’s heads, disemboweled dogs, green, orange, red come to mind. There was that chemical look in his works. Somebody said Mikiboy’s art is an attempt at surrealism.  Attempt is such a brave word: it both embodies the possibility of winning and losing.
