YHWH Custom Show @ TAG (5.11)

May 09, 2013


Toy Art Gallery is presenting Mark Ryden’s YHWH Group Custom Show. Pop-surrealist godfather Mark Ryden’s first and only vinyl toy took three years of meticulous work to create, and with Ryden’s blessing TAG has assembled an extremely talented pool of artists to lend their vision and skill to this amazing vinyl toy.

‘YHWH is the unpronounceable name of god. My YHWH represents the indefinable nature of the divine and its unspeakable mystery, which can be represented by anything from a burning bush to a three eyed bunny totem. In creating my YHWH toy edition, I strove to elevate each and every individual figure from a mass produced piece of plastic to a magical object. 
I very much look forward to seeing how each artist responds to the spiritual energies of their YHWHs.‘ 
-Mark Ryden
