This is my new favorite artist, Kathi Olivas. She’s a New Mexico artist who is inspired by early American portraits depicting children as small adults in a new world to create art of children as adults in a dystopian future. I like her mixed media sculptures best, especially the Lizzies (top).

As much as I’d love to have a dystopian child sentinel guarding my door, it’s not in my budget, but a Kathi Olivas toy/figurine might be.
