DrilOne had a chance to sit down with Spence and Mikie of Blamo Toys during the show they threw on 11/08/09 titled "Welcome to Blamoville". this is a really cool interview where the guys talk about what makes their product unique, how the company got started, and what they have in store for the future. If you get a chance you can still see the show up at Million Fishes Gallery, and then it will travel down to Designer Con in Pasadena on November 21st... so there are more opportunities for you to see these amazing pieces in person. Thanks for the video Dril you rock!
The variety of work on show is eclectic, and that is precisely the reason why we chose them in the first place. From D*Face's two-dimensional graphic art to the rich textures of emerging artist Vesna Parchet's styled character-based paintings, a plethora of mediums, emotions and messages are employed for the viewer to digest.
This particular show is very close to our hearts as we are finally able to put together an amazing line up of artists to produce works for our Tokyo readers and Japanese collectors to see in person. We have been interviewing and working on projects with so many talented British creatives over the years and to finally curate our own show in Tokyo for our main audience is a true honour.
On the opening night, we will also have special guests: Usugrow, Jeff Soto, Shohei Takasaki, Yoshiki & Nagayama also showing their works.
Exhibition venue: Time Out Gallery, Liquidroom
Opening Date: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, 12 November, 2009
Exhibition runs: 13 November 2009 – 3 December, 2009
Monster 60 is much happier than 59. 60 is a bit of a showboat. Do you think this one is compensating for its small stature? Or is it actually a truly big bird? Seems like it's bowing. What performance just ended here? Music? Theater? Oratory? Motivational speaking? I hope you'll let us in on 60's secret.
