The return of Daniel Arsham x APPortfolio “Disney Collection” this time around the Hollow Mickey will come in a grey edition! Last year saw the OG white edition unveiled at Innersect in Shanghai. Fast forward to the present day collectors will be happy to know one more chance to own a Hollow Mickey! “Inspired by Mickey Mouse movie “Thru the Mirror” in 1936. Daniel Arsham’s “Hollow Mickey,” which was featured at the “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition,” in New York, was a hot topic around town at the time. Arsham once told media that his work in the DISNEY COLLECTION BY DANIEL ARSHAM was a new imagining based on an original Walt Disney animation.
“In this animated short, Mickey seemed to step through different spatial dimensions, entering another world through a “mirror.” “Thru the Mirror” is a short Disney Mickey Mouse cartoon released in 1936. In the short cartoon, Mickey has an “Alice Through the Looking Glass” sort of dream: he passes through the mirror into a chaotic world where everything is alive. There, cavorting with a pair of gloves and hot-trotting with an oversized deck of cards, he danced a la Fred Astaire until they drove him out of this strange world. The short film is a parody that draws inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass.” – Daniel Arsham
Last year, APPortfolio, an international art platform, launched the “DISNEY COLLECTION BY DANIEL ARSHAM X APPORTFOLIO ” series for the first time. These exclusive Mickey Mouse art pieces were in high demand as the collection was a big hit among art collectors and celebrity artists.
Daniel Arsham’s “Hollow Mickey” series is inspired by Mickey in the animated short film “Thru the Mirror.” The collection was designed as a two-piece set representing Mickey’s other self in the mirror. In July this year, APPortfolio will launch the grey edition of “Hollow Mickey,” completing the “Hollow Mickey” series. In addition, this work also adopts the NFC-enabled anti-counterfeiting authentication label to protect the rights and interests of buyers.”
