Tiger Bolts by Matt Leines x RVCA x Artoyz

Previous Next

New York artist Matt Leines’ striking tiger image—created for RVCA as a collection for the apparel brand’s Artist Network Program (ANP)—comes to life as his first vinyl art toy. Produced by Artoyz, the Tiger Bolts figure is a strong translation of the original image which brings together his passion for tigers and frequent use of lightning bolts. In apparently fortuitous timing, the figure’s release coincides with the Year of the Tiger.

Tiger Bolts flows out of Leines’ signature aesthetic. The tiger’s face is an apparent amalgamation of his previous tiger people portraits. Each of the four lightning bolts—representative of the geometric aspect of his artwork—features a different shade of blue fill and varying colors for the stroke. The toy is an engaging example of Matt Leine’s eclectic, immediately recognizable style.

An edition of 800, the Tiger Bolts vinyl art toy (11.81″ L x 9.84″ H) is available from Artoyz (€200) and select retailers including Strangecat Toys ($250)
