Toy Art Gallery is proud to present our newest group show, Red Carpet Kaiju! We’ve invited some of the best monster and kaiju-inspired artists from around the world to showcase their unique visions and talents within this strange and wonderful sub-genre of art toys. Their work spans from production toys and hand-painted customs to unique sculptures made from a variety of mediums.
Red Carpet Kaiju features art and toys by: Akoart (Japan), Alimana (Mexico), Blobpus (Japan), Bob Conge/Plaseebo, Carlos Enriquez Gonzalez (Venezuela), Emilio Garcia (Spain), Lil Japan, Ilanena (Japan), L’amour Supreme, LASH, Mark Nagata, Matt Walker, Paul Kaiju, Pico Pico (Japan), Toshikazu Nozaka (Japan), Tulip (Japan), Uamou (Japan), Velocitron (Japan), Yamazakura (Japan) and more.
Some highlights include the debut of Blobpus’s newest figure BERORON, a collaboration with Akoart and an exclusive run of Emilio Garcia’s JUMPING BRAIN vinyl figure. We will also be debuting our toy brand TAGTOYS with sneak previews of new figures: ALIEN ARGUS by Mark Nagata and HIEROPHANY by Carlos Enriquez Gonzalez, both made in luscious Japanese soft vinyl.
Opening reception is September 4th 2010 from 7-11 PM, with artists in attendance, music, drinks, a food truck, giveaways, live video streaming, and more!
Hollywood, CA-based Toy Art Gallery is the first gallery its kind to showcase and consult on high-end art toys and sculptures. Our goal is to showcase exciting, original, and new artists who use figurative sculpture as their primary medium of expression.
