Seen: Pseudomorphism @ TAG
Toy Art Gallery presented Pseudomorphism on Saturday evening featuring the work of Blobpus, Paul Kaiju, Hanawa and Yamomark. The show featured numerous hand-painted customs (beautiful work), and several excellent toy releases.
TAG released their collaborative Vertebrata figure from Blobpus and Paul Kaiju in two unpainted editions – light green and light pink. The gallery also debuted its newest lifesize figure – Blobpus’s iconic octopus style monster. This oversize version features cutaways (stomach and brain) revealing the beast’s inner workings. As with PK’s large Boss Carrion, the Blobpus is articulated and features a beautiful paint job. New limited-editions of Pollen Kaiser (candy apple green) and Luftkaiser rounded out the show’s numerous drops.
Sofubi fans turned out for the show early to grab a ticket and then waited patiently for their randomly chosen number to be called so they could make their selections. Things went smoothly with many picking up the new production Vertebratas as well as their favorite hand-painted pieces. Many stayed to chat with both Kaji San (blobpus) and Paul.
While these shots give you a nice overview of the show, be sure to hit up our facebook album featuring Kris’s detailed shots of seemingly every custom in the show – beautifully executed work with considerable variety.
If you’re a sofubi fan in the area and somehow missed the opening, it’s more than worth a visit.
