Over the past couple of weeks, the folks at Might Jaxx have been teasing us like a stripper! TODAY they’ve pulled the rabbit out of the hat by revealing in full their collaboration with Thai artist Alex Face! Yes, Mighty Jaxx brings Alex Face’s art into an art collectable. It seems like years since we’ve seen an art toy from Alex Face and it looks like we won’t have to wait too long to get hold of one.
A curious baby, the brainchild of Thai graffiti artist Alex Face, is a familiar face on many streets in Thailand and Southeast Asia. This lovable little boy, often clad in fluffy animal costumes, can be found doing all sorts of things – from cleaning up the beach to meditating to more ‘adult’ activities like smoking. But this undoubtedly adorable figure questions bigger things in life.- Mighty Jaxx
The character’s name is Mardi, which in Thai means “To come with good things”, and his creation was inspired by the daughter of Alex Face himself. In an interview, Alex described, “The first time I saw her she looked angry or worried”. It made him think about why she looked like that and caused him to reflect on the life she had ahead. “I thought are you not happy to be my daughter? Are you not happy to be in the world?”. These are hard-hitting questions for not only the artist, then a restless young father with an uncertain future, but also for every one of us. Perhaps Mardi helps us peer a little deeper into our own souls to find the truth that we all seek in our hearts.
Alex Face x Mighty Jaxx brings you Baby Rabbit, a version of Mardi holding a tiny baby rabbit as an offer of peace and truce while concealing his inner anger and unhappiness.
