A throwback video from “kingsofnewyork“ to show you all what can be done with the AllCityStyle subway train.
“The Tag The System show follows the path successfully cut by Toy2R and Kidrobot with their respective Qee and Dunny exhibitions, in which a blank production-ready toy platform is customized by a variety of artists to make one-of-a-kind art pieces. Tag The System’s built-in overarching theme brought an added relevance to this formula, in which the design object, the artist selection and the concept worked toward the same end: a celebration of subway art, with heavy participation by NYC street artists, painted on the 20-inch miniature subway trains created by BigshotToys . Think of it as the alternative celebration marking the 100th anniversary of the New York City’s subway system.
Over 150 artists participated in the show, with one entire wall dedicated to NYC writers both veteran and emerging. A diverse group of artists from other contemporary art and toy spheres contributed as well, ranging from James Jarvis and Maharishi to the Ron English and Hot Wheels Graphics Team. The results were phenomenal, showing a wide range of diversity and inspiration. Opening night was an invite-only, complete with spotlights and an open bar in the restaurant downstairs.”
“Created, sculpted, and produced by Bigshot Toyworks, the All-City Style Train was tremendously popular when we first introduced it in 2005. Supported by multiple custom shows in New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, Moscow, and Melbourne.“
All-City Style Trains were embraced by both the graff community and the designer toy community as an excellent platform figure for artists of all styles. At 20″ long, it’s a large canvas…and with connector pieces included to join two trains together, it provides the artist with a lot more room to work than the average platform toy.
