"THE KAPPA SHOW" at Gallery Moshi Moshi

Mizuno is doing a solo show at Moshi Moshi, her friend
Billy Galaxy's store in Portland from July 3rd to August 5th. 
It's a mini-show with three big paintings on canvas and  thirty little pieces on Japanese paper ( They are all hand-painted.
NOT PRINTS!) that are pretty affordable.

All the pieces will be available on the gallery's website soon.

What is "Kappa" ?
"Kappa" are water sprites in Japanese folklore, often depicted as tortoise-like humanoids with green skin, beaked faces and 
shells on their backs. A cavity on the top of their heads is
filled with water and is said to be their vulnerable spot - when it's dry, they lose their energy and power. Kappa appear in a
lot of Japanese comics, animation, TV commercials, etc. They are loved by people as a cute character despite the fact that
they are rumored to drag humans into the water and pull out
their guts through their anuses.
