Always love discovering artists that I didn’t know about previously, and that is the case with the works of Nicolas Barrome Forgues whom has just opened his Rescue Me showcase at our friends Mothership Gallery in Philidelphia this weekend!
I wasn’t familiar with Nicolas’ work, but this crazy hybrid of characters has definitely caught my attention and I’m sure that could be the case for you guys too.
The Rescue Me exhibit is French artist Nicolas Barrome Forgues introduction to designer toys! Nicolas has hand painted 11 original art sculptures and will be debuting his first two toys “Party Pal” and “Tartine” produced by Martian Toys x Rlux Customs x Emergency Toys
Rescue me is Nicolas Barrome Forgues new collection of sculptures and high-quality prints, representing different situations of toxic relationships between human and the world. The sculptures are made in resin and hand painted in a series of only 3 pieces each character.
As part of the festivities of this Rescue Me show, Nicolas is also painting two murals in Philly
The murals are located at Lloyd Bar: 529 E Girard Ave Philadelphia PA 19125 and Kensington Community Food Co-Op: 2670 Coral St Philadelphia PA 19125
The remaining art from the Rescue Me show can be found online at the Martian Toys site HERE! You can check out the work of Nicolas Barroom Forgues below…
