Concept

The Momonsters are colourful souls who live in the realm of Giovanni Motta.
They are the thrills of a fair ride, but without the fear. Their home is an abandoned fairground. They are born from matter and are shaped by the hands of the artist, who takes inspiration from Japanese cartoons and drawings by his sons Massimiliano and Ottaviano. They are little sculptures made of clay, paper and resin. Every now and then, one of them comes to life and becomes a piece of pottery, a painting or a cartoon strip.

Blue Julian is thoughtful, diligent and calm. He is light-hearted, profound, introverted and sweet. Red Atomic is energetic, strong and inquisitive. He is Blue Julian’s inseparable brother and is ardent and intense. Massimiliano and Ottaviano unexpectedly came up with Blue Julian and Red Atomic one summer’s day. They stood out immediately among all of the little sculptures that we have made and I decided to make them immortal.
