Welcome to the March edition of Reactor-88's Custom Corner. This month we're highlighting the dynamic duo of Julia and Guillaume Lachambre, aka Artmymind. They are full-time French artists currently working out of a secret lair in Poland, where they create custom vinyl toys and original resin figures, as well as some other crazy projects that will be revealed later this year. They have a strong love for Asian culture- it is an important source of inspiration and influence in their artwork. They also love Sashimi, so it's fitting that Japan was the birthplace of Artmymind and location of their first studio.
I first came across Julia and Guillaume's work last year and was immediately blown away by what I saw. While their creations are still toys at heart, they could easily be confused for museum-quality works of art. The level of detail and craftsmanship in their work is amazing- I can only imagine the amount of time and effort that goes into each creation. And the toy community has taken notice as well- you can purchase pieces from the their online store, though the majority of their work is currently sold out. They also have a very long commission list, but don't let that stop you from emailing them to discuss art, collaborations, or future projects. If you'd just like to keep up with them and their fantastic work, they can be found in the usual places as well- Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and their blog.
