“Highly inspired by vintage Japanese toys/television, big screen Kaiju monsters, 1960s Sci-Fi, and old horror shows, Paul “Kaiju” is member to an extremely talented small group of industry leading toy artists that not only design, but sculpt, engineer, and self-produce their toys in Japan through a very rare “sofubi” (soft vinyl) traditional manufacturing process. Always the constant muse for the independent art toy industry, Kaiju pioneered techniques, customization, toy design processes (from color/form to function) and has been a major influence to most toy artists and has pushed the boundaries of toy beyond commercial application into new contemporary sculpture.” – From the official press release.
There will be an opening reception on Saturday, March 19th from 6-9 PM with Paul Kaiju himself in attendance.
The artist will have a limited amount of his hand-painted custom figures at the opening reception.
Sales for this figure on Saturday will require a raffle ticket that will be distributed on a first come first serve basis, starting at noon Friday, March 18th through 5:30 PM on the 19th (right before reception).
During the exhibition all sales will be in person only, so no phone calls or emails will be accepted. The remaining pieces (if any) will be put up for online sale on Monday, March 21st.
If you’re around the corner, don´t miss the chance to get this and meet Paul Kaiju in person.
