Coming off of the news that Sanrio (Like, the company, not just Hello Kitty.) purchased Martin Hsu’s “Sanrio’s 50th Family Vacation,” I can’t wait to give Martin a congratulatory hug tonight! This is actually his second piece to be bought by Sanrio. (The first, “Hello Kitty Wedding” shows a spooky side of Martin that I can only marvel at. This is the same guy who designed for Nihao Kai-Lan? Really?)
In a style very different than both his Compound Gallery pieces and Sanrio pieces, Martin will be kicking off yet another gallery show at Lower Haters in San Francisco.
