'Grab your crayons, re-live the nostalgia and help defeat the evil forces of Skeletor!'

Enter a world that celebrates the 80’s cartoon He-Man by participating in Michael Pope's interactive exhibition at Murky Waters Studio. By the Power of Grayskull features a series of large-format black and white drawings of Masters of the Universe toys that visitors are invited to colour in.

Revel in the preachy Reagan-era goodness, the nostalgia of childhood toys and the stylised drawings (complete with bulging biceps and hairy loin cloths)! *squeal!
