Wellcome to The Toy Chronicle Artist Spotlight. We shine the light over to South Korea to May Kim AKA Crystal May. May is well known for her Fashion/Art sculptures. May’s latest beautiful sculpture “Come. Back. Home” clearly shows what talent and versatilely May can do. The flow of the sculpture, capturing the emotions with the paint and finely crafted face, and poses are just one of many talents from May.
May who’s a Figure Art Director at www.mirohouse.co.kr/ who boasts a huge range of well known clients. May has plenty of experience with her fashion art toys as well as in the past, prototyping for action figure giants HOT TOYS.
“Come. Back. Home” by Crystal May x Makers Kakao. Is May’s latest release. Ever so elegant, even though we’re not collectors of fashion sculptures/ figure we can still appreciate May’s stunning work. The semi translucent dress and the flow of the hair took our breath away.
