3DRetro teams up with Gary Baseman to release a 7.5” vinyl beast Ahwroo! 3DRetro turning Gary Baseman’s illustrations and character from 2D to 3D format! Check out Ahwroo in its vinyl art toy form. Ahwroo will be available first during Life is Beautiful Festival. From the photos shown it looks like no lost in translation as Ahwroo resembles Gary Baseman painting and illustrations, now we can all have an affordable version of Ahwroo and have the little chap on display.
Ahwroo was created in 2012. This role is similar to a monkey and also a monster. The cute and scary character, Ahwroo, bears his snaggle-toothed grin to express his want of attention. If he doesn’t get it, he just might scratch and draw some blood. He not only needs a lot of attention but also hides the complex and contradictory aspects of human nature. Needless to say, the creation of Ahwroo is definitely one of a kind. The meticulous details of painting and the natural form of the first-class engraving technology feel like Ahwroo is in front of us!!
Each figure is $70 and these are an edition of 250.
3DRetro is the official collectables store for Life is Beautiful Festival located inside the Western Hotel along with M Modern Gallery “Crime on Canvas” Art Show.
September 21st – 23rd Las Vegas, Nevada
Can’t make it to the festival? Don’t be too salty as 3DRetro has announced both online sales and in-store will commence after the festival. Stay tuned for further updates.
