Happily Ever After Exhibition
Coppa Feel believes that everyone deserves to live Happily Ever After!
Last week we headed over to 71 Leonard Street to have a look at the Happily Ever After Exhibition on show. The show was put on by Happy Ending Agency with a good cause at the centre of it, all proceeds from print sales are going to Coppa Feel. A charity set up to help stop the late detection of breast cancer in young women.
Over 25 illustrators were invited to put together a piece of work based on their interpretation of the them “Happily ever after”. Below are a few of the prints that were on show but there are plenty more to check out and purchase at www.happyexhibition.co.uk
Big Bad Wolf By @_Doaly
“The general idea I had about my piece was that the forest and the wolf are both a metaphor for fear and the unknown. Overcoming your fear is less daunting when you take it one step at a time rather than dealing with it as a whole” – Doaly
“El Laberinto del Fauno” by @RossPopejoy
Is a piece based on Guillermo del Toro’s tale of Pan’s Labyrinth. The illustration focuses on the head of the faun whose mouth has been created to mimic the shape of the tree that Opelia uses to enter the mysterious World, led by a fairy.
“The Witch” by @Blastto
Is an eerie illustration about a woman known for her ability to ensnare the minds of those they encounter with magical forces beyond human understanding.
“The Lights of the Forrest” by @Noem9studio
Is based on Onibi, which is a type Kaika in legends from Japan. They are the spirits born from corpses of humans and animals, and are also said to be resentful creatures that have become a blue fire and appear in the forest.
“Maybe it’s about the story” by @alex_fowkes
This quote comes from an incredible 13 year old by the name of Athena Orchard.
