Urban vinyl is a type of designer toy, which is commonly made of vinyl. Urban vinyl first made it's debut in the 1990s in Hong Kong by artist Michael Lau. Lau's efforts have since then branched off to a number of different artists, many of them which are graffiti artists, DJs and designers, taking their canvas and street art in three dimensional form in the hip hop arena and beyond. More recently urban vinyl has branched off into different medium including plastic, wood and resin. The process of making resin urban figures is more labor and time intensive, and are made in more smaller numbers in comparison to it's vinyl counterpart, thus making these works of art highly collectible.
