party in my tummy is a collection of small square gouache paintings of fruits, vegetables, and other ingredients from previous collaborations of Chicho Gelato's exclusive flavours. the title is a direct reference to the Yo Gabba Gabba song, where friendly green monster Brobee eats his lunch (cheese, chicken, and juice) and also tries new vegetables (green beans and carrots) which all end up having a great juicy party in his tummy. Along with his friends Muno, Foofa, Toodee, Plex, and narrator/host DJ Lance Rock, Brobee is encouraged to try new foods while being supported by his friends.
I have also enjoyed trying the various flavours of Chicho with my friends over the years, and had many great parties in my tummy.
party in my tummy was created for Ciao! a group exhibition at Chicho Gelato, Northbridge curated by Rebecca Jensen.
