Plaseebo's Kaiju customs for Monsters From The Island!

Bob "Plaseebo" Conge has revealed two custom kaiju pieces for the previously announced upcoming neo-kaiju & sofubi show at Clutter: the "Plaseebo Mummy / Tarantino *B F M edition (*Bloody F***en Mess)" (pictured above) and "Puppy Night Gamer," made in collaboration with Kaiju Coup (pictured below). The Plaseebo Mummy is hand-painted sofubi (Japanese vinyl) with swirled glass eyes, and — as blood covered as it is — it appears to be a tribute to Quentin Tarantino's frequent over-the-top usage of violence in his films. The "Puppy Night Gamer" is cast in hand-painted glow-in-the-dark sofubi with red glass eyes and an internal motion activated LED unit! With only one of each having been made, you should join Clutter's Gallery Preview List — which allows recipients to purchase pieces prior to the opening — if you have any interest in buying from the show.

"Monsters from the Island," a group neo-kaiju & sofubi show guest curated by Monster Island NYC, will open on Saturday, March 9th with a reception from 6-9PM and be available for viewing through April 6th, 2013 at The Clutter Gallery, 163 Main St., Beacon, NY 12508.
