Justin Alan Volpe, creator of POPprolific and master of mash-ups, will release The Priors of Chaos at PIQ Grand Central Terminal Friday May 12;
“Themes of chaos and destruction surrounds some of the best villains of 80s and 90s, and this is my tribute to that tradition.” -Justin Alan Volpe
“This 5.5” clear resin blue-glow figures are the result of a decade of sculpting, collecting, and casting. Using an over-sculpting technique Justin creates figures with recognizable elements that merge into new characters. The glow-in-the-dark Priors of Chaos figures have removable custom robes in three pieces with Swarovski crystals.”
Justin will be signing and sculpting live on May 12 from 7:00-9:00 PM at PIQ Grand Central Terminal.
