Blown Away Trooper by Josh Mayhem

Bio: Josh Mayhem’s lifelong habit of collecting children’s playthings has fueled his passion for transforming said toys into objects d’art. Embracing both order and chaos as inspiration points, Mayhem’s mixed media ‘art toys’ tend to be created in two contrasting styles: intricate, detailed assemblages comprised of Japanese model kit parts, and more free-flowing, expressionist sculptures. Among his best-known pieces are those constituting his “Blown Away” series, in which mass-produced forms are covered in strands of resin and layers of acrylic paint to create gravity-defying drips that give the impression of the work being deconstructed by a strong wind. The popularity of this direction has led to Mayhem being nominated for Designer Toy Awards, participating in TRASHed: Art of Recycling at Coachella Festival, representation by the Corner12 agency, and continuing partnerships with the premiere worldwide creator and dealer of limited edition art toys, Kidrobot.
