Art in Spain with artist Jaime Hayon

Almost two years ago, on the occasion of the Dunny Series 2009 release, we posted about the first time we saw a vinyl toy, that was when Max Dana showed us one of the many toys she collects from spanish designer Jaime Hayon. Since then, we’re totally hooked! We like a lot what Hayon does and we think it was time to dedicate a post to him and his inspired and creative work, from vinyl toys to sofas and chairs, and ultra design Art Deco style ...


Twitter Sunday: Favorites Tweets @tristaneaton

There are many artists we didn’t know before Max Dana told us. We are not going to mention them all, but American artist Tristan Eaton is one of them. We are following him for several months on Twitter @tristaneaton and we more and more appreciate his work. He’s working on a new exhibition and he shares on Twitter his sketches, paintings and some murals he’s working on. And now, we share them with you! Here are our Favorites Tweets ...


Twitter Sunday: Favorites Tweets @themonsterist

We follow many artists on Twitter. Artists we of course appreciate but sometimes their tweets are not as interesting as their work (and no, we won’t give names!). Pete Fowler‘s tweets @themonsterist prove the contrary. The artist lives in Monsterism Island and here is his Twitter Bio: ‘drawer, illustratorer, scrabble loser, sound explorer and yacht rock lover. Did I mention owls?’. Because of the Mini Boosh toy figures, TRWG!, the ...


Holiday Dunnys Ruin Christmas at Kidrobot!

Last September we posted an article: Dunny Series 2009: released! and in October it was about An Interview with Frank Kozik at Juxtapoz. This time we wanted to show you a very crual nice video introducing Chuckboy‘s 3-inch Naughty Reindeer Dunny, doe-eyed deviant rewards nice kids with his removable bull whip and vinyl antlers, and naughty ones with two badass chases.  More about the Naughty Reindeer Dunny by Chuckboy at Kidrobot!


An Interview with Frank Kozik at Juxtapoz

  Juxtapoz published a very interesting interview of Frank Kozik. It was during The Art of Rebellion, an art show in NYC featuring 10 iconic rock poster artists, and Juxtapoz got a chance to speak with renowned artist, Frank Kozik. They talked about the artistic process, the state of the music industry, and his Kid Robot toys.   Kozik’s quick bio (from Wikipedia):   Frank Kozik was born in Madrid, Spain. At the age of 14 he moved to the United ...


Dunny Series 2009: released!

Vinyl toys. First time we actually saw one of them was 3 or 4 years ago, when Max Dana, on a cold winter morning, put on the conference table a toy from spanish designer Jaime Hayon. We looked at it, we wondered what it was, who designed it and ultimately if it had any kind of sexual use (you know, vinyl toys…). Max told us a lot about those designer toys before but it was the first time she shared with us a piece of her very private collection. ...
