Tan-Ki – When Birds Sing the Song of the Clouds (11.12)

TAG02-034BD-600x399

French artist Tan-Ki will make the trip from France to Hollywood, CA for the opening of his ‘When Birds Sing the Song of the Clouds’ solo @ Toy Art Gallery on Friday, November 12th 2010 (7-11 PM).  Tan-Ki is perhaps best known for his original Kitoy resin line.  The clever design is both familiar and refreshing.  Cast in translucent resins of various shades, the Kitoy is an alluring collectible that bridges the difference between art toy and design object.  Tan-Ki creates special editions by inserting colorful objects (‘inclusions’) into the figure as it’s cast  including colored balls, mini-figures, toy soldiers and more. 

For his first solo in the USA, Tan-Ki has been hard at work on an army of his small  Ki-Clear figures filled with all manners of surprises. Also look for special Kitoy offerings including bronze figures.    He’ll also be presenting a selection of custom vinyl figures.  We’ve been fans of Tan-Ki for several years now and are looking forward to seeing his gleaming creations in person.
