Pop Mart x Xuan Yi — Ayla


-Pop Mart's dizzying release schedule continues with a surprise. Chinese artist Xuan Yi (亦宣) makes her Pop Mart debut with her signature Ayla (Elf Deer) character in a pink pajamas, rabbit cosplay-style design.  Rather than a mini series, the first Ayla release is a medium-sized figure (6.7")—a relative rarity for Pop Mart. The debut Ayla figure will be available shortly  in China for ¥499 ($70) and presumably in other markets shortly.

Xuan Yi is part of Pop Mart's Pop Design Center (PDC), an art toy incubator of sorts. Several of her designs were featured at this year's PDC Beijing Toy Show booth including smaller versions as well as ones with distinct deer antlers.

Emilio Garcia — McBrain at Swab Barcelona Art Fair


Emilio Garcia will unveil his latest cerebral sculpture at Swab Barcelona Art Fair (9.26 - 9.29).  Perhaps playing off the food for thought concept, McBrain brings us a tasty looking burger with a subtle twist: a brain bun. 3 Punts Gallery will showcase this latest piece in Garcia's brain evolution at the art fair.
