LA-based artist Matt Gondek will soon launch a solo exhibition at the Avenue des Arts gallery in Hong Kong. Entitled “Growing Pains,” the show will see a new range of paintings and sculptures portraying Gondek’s dissected and twisted versions of popular cartoons including Astro Boy, Homer Simpson, Pinnochio, and more.

The title of the show refers to the artist’s own personal and artistic struggles. “I believe this collection is my strongest work to date, both in execution and growth. If I can continue to allow time, while successfully navigating the negative pressures, my growing pains will end,” Gondek said in a statement.

“Growing Pains” is on view through November 15 to-25. Head over to Avenue des Arts’ website to learn more. Elsewhere in art, Jeff Koons was recently found guilty of plagiarizing a 1980s French ad campaign.
