Apportfolio x Peanuts Collection

Snoopy_Apportfolio_gba-1

Apportfolio unveiled its new Peanuts collection of art toys done in conjunction with the Peanuts Global Artist Collective at its Shanghai Toy Show booth.  The inviting walk-in booth featured prototypes of upcoming figures from many of the collective artists including André Saraiva, FriendsWithYou and AVAF (Assume Vivid Astro Focus). 

André's pieces feature Snoopy, Woodstock and his signature Mr. A character—in yellow, as a nod to, and occasionally as Woodstock.   The FriendsWithYou pieces feature Snoopy with their peaceful moon and cloud characters.  AVAF's Peanuts art comes to life with two neon-hued,crisscross renditions of Snoopy and Charlie Brown.  Apportfolio was also showing what appeared to be a just-completed cosmic Charlie Brown by none other than Kenny Scharf.  Many of the pieces are priced at 1480 RMB (~221) and are apparently scheduled for a Fall 2019 release.   Definitely an exciting project to keep an eye on.  Be sure to check the gallery for photos of each of the prototypes.
