Arkiv’s “Escapist” Opens Tonight at TAG
Toy Art Gallery is proud to present “Escapist”, a solo show from renowned Indonesian artist Arkiv Vilmansa. The exhibit will feature new painted works, sculptures, limited edition prints and a special preview release of his new figure “The Sumo”.
“Over the past several years, artist Arkiv Vilmansa’s iconic character ‘Arkiv Instant’ has made the artist a household name within the lowbrow art and toy culture scene. Arkiv looks to develop his signature image, while debuting new characters and continuing to explore his unique style of combining the surreal and theatrical with playful and whimsical caricature.”
The opening reception is tonight (Friday August 5th 2011) from 7:00PM to 11:00PM. Arkiv will be in attendance with a live painting session. A signing session will follow on Saturday, August 6th 2011 starting at 2:00PM, and the exhibit will be on display until August 26th 2011.
