Toykio‘s Selim Varol‘s first release is solid “Smurf” blue with a white mohawk. Smurf War Church-ill! what a crazy mash up, who would of ever thought of combining the two. Smurf War Church-ill a bust of a “punked” Winston Churchill, serves as a commentary on this state of affairs: Under the rule of Britain’s greatest statesman, the nation never lost a war – except against Turkey. The bust is also a homage to British street artist Banksy, who has achieved international recognition with his politically-charged graffiti and who holds a similarly pivotal place in Selim Varol’s collection.

Banksy’s 2003 work, Turf War, is a black and white stencil of Churchill with a green mohawk. His work was influenced by an anonymous vandal who defaced Churchill’s statue at Parliament Square during the May Day riots back in year 2000.
