Kathie Olivas is an internationally exhibited multi-media artist from New Mexico. Through her current body of work, the Misery Children, she explores society’s insatiable desire to assign ‘cuteness’ and our discomfort with the unknown. A dark blend of early American portraiture set in post-apocalyptic times, Kathie’s paintings and custom toys are a satirical look at how fear affects our sense of reality. Kathie is represented by Stranger Factory Gallery in the United States, and Tomenosuke-syoten (Japan.) She is a founding member/president of Circus Posterus Inc and co-owner of Stranger Factory Gallery in Albuquerque, NM.
