Dory’s Sai Kang Warriors

sai kang warriors

Daniel Yu, who also goes by the name Dory Phunk, has completed work on a series of five "Sai Kang Warriors". These are all made from heavily modified Playmobil figures. Each figure stands approximately 3 inches tall. They were sculpted using epoxy putty and painted with acrylics.

Here's what Daniel says about the custom series:

The term "sai kang", translated from chinese dialect, refers to an unpleasant and undesirable task; or in more literal terms, a shit job. This series seeks to place emphasis on the everyday blue collar worker. The blank, vacant look on each one is reflective of how society views such labourers - without an identity. I wanted to create a sense of individuality for each of the characters, a reminder that the people behind these jobs are integral towards the functioning of our social structure.
