About

While the toyish candy-coloured Ai Ai might appear - to initial observers - to be red-cheeked, warm-pawed playthings, Rachel Ortas' creations from outer space are in fact extremely sharp in tooth and claw, can assume gargantuan proportions and, with childlike malevolence, wreak havoc in the classic monsterly tradition.

Rachel Ortas' dazzling screenprinted posters, books and cards show the Ai Ai running around, clambering joyously up the houses of parliament, riding atop red buses, even clutching stars and planets. The Ai Ai impart messages in clear, though occasionally mispronounced English. As one caption reads: "DO NOT TOUCH A AI AI, BECAUSE I CAN BITE YOU" - you have been warned.
