For our next toy of the week we select Thomas Han’s Pushers from Munky King. The Pushers, Thomas Han’s first art toys, feature four mystical influencers — Spirit (GID pictured), Pirate (GID Pictured), Animal and Monster. Each of these winged creatures has a unique mask and "face" while sharing the same body. The Pushers stand out for the excellent translation of Thomas’s colors and fine line work. The paint execution on the Pushers is outstanding from the subtle gradients across the figures to the super-fine and clean pad printing. Munky King offered both the standard (limited to 500 each) and more limited GID editions (150 of each) of the first two Pushers — Pirate and Spirit — at this year’s SDCC. The standard editions will be available directly from Munky King and select retailers shortly.
About Thomas Han
LA artist Thomas Han’s original art work is noted for the extremely clean rendering achieved through screening techniques and electric pastel palettes combining primarily pinks and blues. These colorful constellations often play host to mystical devilish creatures and brightly-hued pills. His recent work shown at Copro Nason Gallery marks a transition to a more organic look through the use of brush work rather than screening while retaining his familiar characters and color palette.
