Blamo Toys -- ‘Billy’ Custom Group Show at Toy Art Gallery (12.14)

Blamo Toys - Custom Billy Show at Toy Art Gallery

It’s December and that means the annual Blamo Toys show at Toy Art Gallery.  For this year’s show, Blamo has given artists the chance to customize a figure that represents their distinct approach to toys – Billy.  Instead of vinyl or plastic, each 7” Billy is hand-carved from Saur wood.  Plus, a few artists will have even more room to work as they are customizing 25” Big Billys.   Even though we love vinyl and plastic, we’re looking forward to seeing how the invited artists engage with the organic material.

Bigger and better than before, this year’s exhibition features Billys from over 100 artists including: Aeron Alfrey, Ajee, Alexis Mixter, Amanda Louise Spayd, Anthony Ausgang, Artmymind, Ardi Hermawan, BenchūK, Beau Blanche, Betso, Brad Isdrab, Brendan Nathaniel, Brent Nolasco, Chauskoskis, Chris Ryniak, Cortlan Robertson,Cris Rose, Daniel Goffin, David Flores, Dax Savage, Dean Goelz, DeeTen, Doktor A,Dril One, Dustin Blanche, Emilio Garcia, Evan Sugarman, FFInc., Flawtoys,Francesco De Molfetta, Frank Kozik, Gary Ham, Germs, Hans Haveron, Hans Walør, Heather Hansen, Hints and Spices, Hugh Rose, Ian Ziobrowski, iROC, Jan Calleja, Jan Hilmer, Jay222, Jermaine Rogers, Jessicka Addams, JFury, Jocelyn Marsh, John Park, Jon-Paul Kaiser, Josh Herbolsheimer, Josh Mayhem, Julie West, Katie Weselby, Kevin Titzer, KMNDZ, Leah Minium, Leecifer, Leesasaur, Leighton Kelly, Lucien Shapiro, Marco Mejia, Martin Hsu, Martin Ontiveros, Matt Dangler, Mike Slobot, Mikie Graham, Miss Monster, Moe & Sean, Monstrehero, Nathan Hamill, Naomi Samara, Nebulon5, Nice Collective, Otto Bjornik, Obscure, Paolo Petrangeli,Podgy Panda, Reactor 88, RSIN, Rudy Fig, Scott Tolleson, Scott Wilkowski, Sean Christopher, Sekure D, Shayne Martea, Shira Loa, Shwa Keirstead, Skinner,Southerndrawl, Spankystokes, Spencer Hansen, Super Cooper, T.
