For art toy collectors, Whatshisname is best known for his POPIKI series of visceral balloon dog vinyl art toys produced in collaboration with Mighty Jaxx. The vinyl figures are inspired by the artist’s fine art multiple resin sculptures shown in galleries and international art fairs.
Blurring the admittedly fuzzy boundaries of sculpture and art toys is the upcoming Black POPek (11.8″). Limited to just 10 pieces, this new resin edition is nearly 50% larger than the vinyl version (8″) and 20 times more limited. It’s an ideal choice for those looking to step up their balloon dog game. The Black POPek will be available on Friday (4.3) at 6 AM PDT from Whathisname’s web shop. Be sure to subscribe to his mailing list for special pricing on the Black POPek.
