MORE Ahwroo By Gary Baseman x 3D Retro

Last year saw 3DRetro teaming up with Gary Baseman letting loose a 7.5” vinyl beast Ahwroo! 3DRetro turning Gary Baseman’s illustrations and character from 2D to 3D format! Check out Ahwroo in its vinyl art toy form. Ahwroo made its debut at Life is Beautiful Festival. We got the chance to see Ahwroo up close at DesignerCon 2018 and can confirm no lost in translation as Ahwroo resembles Gary Baseman painting and illustrations, now we can all have an affordable version of Ahwroo and have the little chap on display. Over the past 48 hours, a photo has surfaced with new colourways of Ahwroo!

No official word if the other 3 are customs or actual new production editions.

Ahwroo was created in 2012. This role is similar to a monkey and also a monster. The cute and scary character, Ahwroo, bears his snaggle-toothed grin to express his want of attention. If he doesn’t get it, he just might scratch and draw some blood. He not only needs a lot of attention but also hides the complex and contradictory aspects of human nature. Needless to say, the creation of Ahwroo is definitely one of a kind. The meticulous details of painting and the natural form of the first-class engraving technology feel like Ahwroo is in front of us!!

Stay tuned for further details.
