“There is a fantastic show going on right now in Lyon, France, it’s called Les Enfants TERRIBLES. Les Enfants TERRIBLES is part of Lyon’s Contemporary Art Biennale and introduces Pop Surrealism to a huge new audience, the main stream art world. Les Enfants TERRIBLES opened with a bang, speeches, introductions and many thanks to the owner of the magnificent and beautiful space The Rhone-Alpes Region, to the city of Lyon and to the curator extradinaire Jerome Catz, owner of Spacejunk Art Centers.”

“I am incredibly honored to be part of this show that includes such a stellar group of artists. Les Enfants TERRIBLES showcases 12 artists from 4 continents including art by Robert Williams, Todd Schorr, Nicolas Thomas, Jeff Soto, Naoto Hattori, Joe Sorren, Odo, Reg Mombassa, Robert Crumb, Victor Castillo, Ray Caesar and myself.Jerome organized a group mural which we painted live during the public opening on Sept 15th 2011. And, while most of the artists were busy inside on the mural, Jeff Soto risked getting soaked by the threat of rain to embark on his own project, Jeff chose a huge wall adjacent to the show to paint a massive eye candy, he finished a 30 ft long cat who now keeps two big bright eyes on the terrible babies long after we’ve gone home.”

“The massive crowd wound down to just a steady stream of interested onlookers by the end of the weekend, this incredible show introducing Pop Surealism to the masses will be up through Dec. 31, 2011. So if you happen to get the chance to visit my new favorite city of Lyon take a peak inside The Rhone-Alpes Region.Many many thanks to Jerome Catz for making this extraordinary event take place and including me amongst such a talented group of artists.” ~ Caia Koopman
