Whatshisname x K.Olin Tribu – Popek Chrome Porcelain

  image3

UK artist Whatshisname has made a name for himself with his playfully rude balloon dog sculptures including the pooping Popek  and the peeing Peepek versions. Art Toy collectors quickly fell in love with vinyl versions of both from Mighty Jaxx.  Now comes a high-end, blingtastic version from K.Olin Tribu.

Limited to just 25 pieces, the Popek Chrome Porcelain (~10.5”) sculpture adds gorgeous chrome plating to the brand’s high quality porcelain casts created in Limoges, France. Beyond the obvious humor and shock value, Whatshiname’s sculptures offer a moment to step outside the expected, to reflect upon the nature of things, possibilities, and with this new gleaming edition, yourself and your surroundings, quite literally, which look back at you from the shiny surface.  Popek Chrome Porcelain is available now from K.Olin Tribu’s ArtAndToys for £816.67 (~$1084).  Each sculpture includes a signed/numbered COA and arrives in a luxurious box.
