Brian Mahony/Guumon: It Came From the East
May 13th-June 7th, 2011; Opening reception Friday, May 13th, 4-9pm
The art toy world is rich with collaboration and a shared interest in the design process. It’s just these elements that artist Brian Mahony loves. He has created two Japanese art toys as GUUMON and that has launched collaborations with artists worldwide. It Came From The East will include custom works by over 20 artists of Mahony designed kaiju (strange monster in Japanese). Mahony also acts as curator with 100 pieces on exhibit including kaiju inspired works of art. This will be his fifth US GUUMON show and in July he will attend his second show in Japan at Design Festa. Meet Mahony at the opening reception as he signs figures and runs a giveaway for reception attendees. Music provided by DJ EXIN.
