17 more days till Taipei Toy Festival 2016 and one artist and works we’ve been keeping a close eye on is Pucky Studio’s releases! Vinyl versions of Pucky Studio’s work are set to make it’s debut at TTF 2016 and they are looking impressive. Wonderfull colour palette that coincide with Pucky’s 2D art. Finally we can have Pucky’s work in vinyl platform. Pucky Studio’s world of surrealism we would love to get lost in.
We love the colour scheme already and seeing Pucky Studio bless the vinyl figures by hand painting them, these will be a special release for sure. We gather Unbox Industries are the guys behind the production, so expect great quality. No news when a general release will be launched but fingers crossed it will be soon after TTF. Stay tuned for more updates.
With a childhood divided between Hong Kong and Canada, Pucky grew up between two cultures, which prompted her to explore creatively the value of identity and the meaning of belonging. After graduation from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver in 2008, she returned to Hong Kong, where she works as a freelance artist and illustrator and created the brand “Pookie”. Pucky’s work is a combination of cute and dark, showing an integrated harmony where opposites like good and evil or love and fear, co-exist. She is deeply inspired by the wonders and mysteries of the world and her drawings are strongly affected by the beauty of their history, science and the romance. She draws to communicate these feelings in her own visual language.
