LittleCollector- Contemporary Art for Kids!
Secret Identity is a series of paintings each representing a plastic model of a famous superhero contained in a clear polythene carrier bag. Superheroes are icons of power whose comic book and film adventures see them engaged in epic battles across the universe, yet these mythic figures have another life as mere consumer objects. Placed in their bags they are robbed of their enormous power yet despite this reduction they remain irresistible in their cartoonish pride.

Born in 1966, Simon Mon's early love of drawing and painting eventually resulted in a career as a college lecturer in Art History. After 20 years in education he decided it was time to return to painting and now works full time in his studio. Since Simon started to show his work, he's exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts and the Courtauld Institute in London as well as many galleries and museums in the UK, Europe and the USA. His passions for both painting and comics have always run in parallel and now, in the 'Secret Identity' series he has managed to bring them together.

As an art adviser and independent curator, Chrissy Crawford was accustomed to clients and friends asking her to find art for their children's rooms. When Crawford had a hard time finding a store or gallery with unique, affordable pieces, she decided to start her own. LittleCollector is a virtual gallery committed to inspiring the next generations of art lovers with contemporary, limited-edition art that looks just as stylish in the living room as it does in your toddler's bedroom. Each art print is made to last — archival pigments are printed according to museum-quality specifications on acid-free paper — and comes framed and ready to hang (complete with a hanger and nail). An authenticity card containing the artist's signature and the edition number is mounted on the back of each piece.
