MONKEY KING: Artwork inspired by Journey To The West.....Sept.28-Oct. 13

Q Pop is so pleased to organize an amazing show dedicated to the Monkey King .

For those of you who don't know who the Monkey King is....he's one of the most popular and famous chinese cultural icons.
Sun Wu Kong, as he's known in chinese, is the main character of one of the oldest novels in China, Journey To The West. He's been the subject of countless films, comics, animation, and operas.
Recently, Jamie Hewlitt and Damon Albarn of Gorillaz fame, fashioned a stage version.
