Tooth Fairy look out... NGA4 is coming after you!

In an effort to promote Canadian art and artists, Toronto-based darkmatters debuts on the designer toy scene with their upcoming figure release by local artist Paddy Leung: NGA4 (Cantonese pinyin pronunciation for the word tooth).

The 2.75” figure will be available for $40 plus shipping beginning October 31st @ 12:00am (EST) from their website, http://www.darkmattersonline.ca. Each figure is carefully hand casted, hand painted and features a laser cut number denoting its place among the limited 30 available. For a closer look with the artist behind the work check out the in-depth interview available HERE. This is a really cool figure, and I am glad to see other companies getting involved with the designer toy scene!

About darkmatters
Joining things together has been the driving force behind darkmatters since its inception in 2009. darkmatters is a Toronto-based art toy collective originally founded by six good friends during a summer barbeque. Our mission is to place Toronto on the map of the designer toy industry. Toy with art, art with business, darkmatters collaborates alongside featured upcoming local artists, transforming their artwork into a collectible vinyl toy. The concept of the ‘art toy’ is novel; artwork is made affordable and collectible without losing the artists’ authenticity and influence. The viewing audience expands beyond the limited art community to include the everyday art enthusiast. Art and business is conjoined in the same way. We hopes to provide local artists with new opportunities while we showcase Canadian art and design to a global audience.
