Poppy Pillow Kitty Kitsch

A bizarre artist is exhibiting her works at an equally strange art gallery today. Pachy Sarmiento, a local graphic designer, approximately combines the aesthetics of Pop Art, Hello Kitty, and pillow making. Her creations are stuffed animals with cartoon faces and Cheezit-shaped torsos. They repose neatly on couches and often have rouged cheeks and zippers for mouths. Sarmiento calls it Pinkypunk. “The Pinkypunk Solo Art Show” opens at 7 p.m. at PinkGhost (21 W. Las Olas Blvd., Ste. B, Fort Lauderdale). There will also be canvasses by the artist and free cupcakes. The event is altogether dainty and incomprehensible, so expect throngs of Japanese tourists. For more info, call 954-616-1304 or visit
