Attention child wonders wait 'til puberty passes, then take over the world

After Monday’s verdict in the Dr. Conrad Murray case, we’re reminded that Michael Jackson was one of those wounded child stars whose lives are destroyed by precocious talent and premature fame. Montreal artist, tchmo, touches on this theme with his new mixed-media series,“Lost Children”, featuring Dana Plato, Gary Coleman, River Phoenix and Corey Haim. Each piece shows a photo of the child star in their prime, faces obscured by bright splotches of clouds and other random shapes--implying they have passed into some obscure realm, never to return.

See tchmo’s Lost Children series below.
