Kyle Kirwan -- Cacophony at Clutter Gallery (5.12)


Kyle Kirwan—nomadic artist extraordinaire—will open his new Cacophony solo at Clutter Gallery in Beacon, NY on Saturday, May 12th.  Beyond the mysterious and terrifying custom Dunny head on the flier, Kyle is also working on a new batch of his Bloom minis and based on the progress photos, there might be quite a variety of head sculpts.  Finally, we know he’s working on at least one more custom Dunny with probably several more lurking in his head.  Drop by the opening to check out the new work and meet the man himself.

TRIAD flyer

Junko Mizuno will open her mini-solo, The Witch, The Nurse & The Wrestler: The Art of Triad Pop Up Book, at Woot Bear on Saturday (12.16) from 6 to 9 PM. Ok, so that’s a rather long title, but it nicely captures the heart of the show.  Junko will offer the original paintings and sketches she created for her Triad pop up book which was released by Poposition back in 2016.  She’ll also have prints and copies of the book.

The show will also feature previews of two of her upcoming projects.  Her upcoming collabo (Woot) Bear project with Scott Wilkowski will be shown in some form.  Plus, her glass figure for the upcoming Ikea Art Event 2018 artist series will be there to turn heads and make the wait for the April release all the more agonizing.  

Hit the jump for a preview of the artwork as well her two figure projects.

Mitchell DeGuzman x DJ Wrex x 3DRetro – Holiday Flash Sale and Toy Drive (12.17)


To brighten the holidays for all, Mitchell DeGuzman and DJ Wrex  have put together a Holiday Flash Sale and Toy Drive on Sunday (12.17) from 11 AM to 6 PM at 3DRetro. In the spirit of giving and receiving, the festive toy drive event will feature big savings on toys for those that donate a toy,  a special appearance by DJ Carisma who will spin from Noon to 2 PM as well as free coffee and donuts, and last but not least – a KAWS BFF Raffle.

So how does this all work? To help children who might otherwise go without a present, 3DRetro is asking for donations of new toys valued at $10 and up.  Customers who bring a toy to donate or buy one to donate, can enjoy deep discounts on the specially marked ‘flash sale’ items.  Come early as the flash discount starts at 60% and decreases throughout the day.  All other items that are not part of the flash sale will be offered at a 25% discount, which is still a pretty good deal.

But wait, what about the BFF raffle?  Be sure to check out the official rules on the 3DRetro Instagram, but basically you need to repost the event announcement by Friday and then be at the event prior to the drawing which takes place at 5PM. If you’re looking to buy some last minute gifts for someone special (including yourself), this is a great chance to do so and save some money at the same time.

Yoskay Yamamoto will open his new Homebound solo on Saturday (11.11) at Giant Robot 2 in West LA.  While we haven’t much in the way of previews so far, going by the flier image and two sneak peeks he posted on IG (possibly up close crops), his new collection of paintings will offer a blend of new uplifting elements and anthropomorphized characters with his signature style.   If you’re in town, the opening should be on your calendar.

unnamed (12)
The back room of Tim Biskup’s Face Guts is chock-full of toys including  his massive personal collection of western and Japanese vinyl and an impressive back stock of a large number of his previous releases.  So how do you get to shop this treasure trove?  Tim is holding an epic toy sale event, ‘Tim’s Toys’, at Face Guts on Friday November 10th, 2017.  In a mood to clear some space, the figures in his collection will be ‘priced to sell’. He’ll also be offering items from his back stock. More?  There will also be a drop of the  Face Guts Exclusive Green Prenute (above,in the center) from Gravy Toys

He’ll open the doors for a preview session at noon during which you can gaze blankly at row after row of toys and try not to get too much drool on the carpets. With any luck, this should speed up the toy buying.  At 5 pm, he’ll start sales with the line order determined by lottery.   The frenzy will continue until either the folks in line or Tim pass out.  It all starts up again on Sunday from Noon to 6 PM.

Kontasuya Exhbition at myplasticheart: Exclusives + Event Info (11.3)



Not only is Konatsu returning to NYC for her third exhibition at myplasticheart on Friday (11.3, 7-10 pm), she’s bringing a staggering number of her animal friends with her. There are six show releases including Daioh Negora Pink Lucky Cat,  Negora Brown Moustache, Fluffy Negora Pearl White, Daioh Shibara Hariko, Sakiros Platinum, and Pigora White-Eye. That’s quite a lineup of production sofubi drops.  In light of the anticipation for the show, myplasticheart will hand out numbered ‘line’ tickets at 1 PM EST on Friday at the gallery.  The ticket number will determine order of purchase with the line starting at 6:30 PM for sales starting at 7.


The exhibition will also feature a number of customs from Konatsu  and guest artists Black Seed Toys and Rampage Toys (Daioh Negora, Sleeping Negora  and Negora).  Konatsu will also be live customizing her brand-new Sitting Negora on Saturday (2-4 PM) for up to 20 people—first come, first served. Customers will be able to choose from one of several painted templates and then Konatsu will paint the custom Sitting Negoras ($36) right then and there!

As is her style, Konatsu will be keeping busy during the opening reception. She’ll be live painting from 8-9 PM and doing a Meet & Greet session for fans/collectors from 9-10PM during which she’ll be signing but will not be sketching.  Goes without saying that this is a must-see event for Konatsu fans.
