Kidrobot continues its preview of the upcoming Exquisite Corpse Dunny series with Mexico-based artist Mr. Mitotoe’s MexicanDemon design inspired by Mexican culture including mystic masks and rituals. The deep maroon red design features an elaborate demo mask and traditional deco elements throughout. Curated by Red Mutucua Studios and CoART Magazine, the upcoming series features the studios’ twelve artists working with the new modular Dunny which allows parts to be swapped in and out including magnetic head, body and legs.
“The Mexican culture is the most inspiration for me, the mystic masks and prehispanic culture. I like the colors and shapes that represent Mexicans demons.” – Mr. Mitote
The Exquisite Corpse Dunny series will be released on Friday, February 7th 2020 at 8 AM PST from Kidrobot’s online store and select retailers. The series is named after the creative challenge enjoyed Frida Kahlo and other Surrealist painters enjoyed, which involved taking turns creating a portrait on a folded sheet of paper so that each artist had to create a section (head, torso, etc) without the benefit of seeing the others’ work.
