AKA Curious Boy – East to West: XuanZang
Shanghai-based artist Curious Boy (@akacuriousboy) has just released his new art toy, XuanZang. The new figure is the third release in his East to West series, a hip-hop infused take on the legendary Chinese tale Journey to The West. XuanZang offers a new vision of the tale’s central character, a monk, making the perilous journey. The artist’s stylized warrior monk figure features a striking, elaborate helmet/cloak (removable) symbolizing the White Dragon Horse. He also flashes a modified version of Jay Z’s signature hand gesture.
XuanZang stands 9” without cloak about 10.25” with it. The figure will be available in four planned versions including Bronze (above) which features an impressive patina effect and Golden (below). Both are available now for $150 (including global shipping). To order drop an email to email@example.com.
Chris Ryniak – Foggy Smidgen (3.11)
Heads up! Chris Ryniak’s next release is this Saturday and will feature the Foggy Smidgen resin as well as a slew of original drawings. True to his name, Foggy Smidgen is cast in matte transparent resin and perhaps contrary to his name, sure to bring smiles wherever he goes. No word on pricing yet. The drop is set for Saturday, March 11th 2017 @ 12 PM PST from Bindlewood.com.
