Proto Monday >> Sam Flores x UP x TLS –- Dragon Boy

 
Today on Proto Monday we’re bringing you the very first look at Sam Flores’s amazing Dragon Boy (10”) vinyl art toy created for  Upper Playground’s 10th Anniversary and produced by The Loyal Subjects.  Taking a bold approach, Flores has designed Dragon Boy in three separate pieces – head, midsection and tail, that give the illusion of a Dragon floating through the clouds.  The design concept will be familiar  to those who viewed his recent LA solo at Subliminal projects which featured a similar painting.

The figure pushes the conceptual limits of  art toys through its beautiful design, imaginative presentation, and technical paint application featuring highly detailed gradient blends. By taking risks with a  firm emphasis on  artful display, Dragon Boy points towards a promising future for art toys driven by imagination rather than the status quo.   Slated for an August/September drop, the limited-edition figure will ship in a double-sided window box and come with a scenic card insert.  Very exciting.
