Bob Conge (Plaseebo Customs) was one of the artists to be invited to create a custom Marshmallow Uncle figure for the Angel Abby x Black Seed Marshmallow Uncle Custom Show at Wrong Gallery in Taipei Taiwan. The show opens on October 8th 2015. Bob's submission is the one of a kind Electric Uncle. This glow-in-the-dark vinyl features red glass eye inserts and space junk inside of the clear vinyl Chest Burster. He also has an internal motion activated color-changing Led unit...so he glows in two ways.
The name of Toy Art Gallery's upcoming show - Famous Last Words - is somewhat fitting as it's their swan song show. The group show features works from Izumonster, Joseph Harmon, Kikkake Toy, Martin Ontiveros, Miscreation Toys, Restore, Pico Pico, T9G, and Uamou. The sad news is that this event will be the last at TAG's current location. They will continue their online shop as well as toy production...but this'll be the final time you can get out to the physical place.
The show opening takes place on Saturday, September 5th 2015 from 7PM to 10PM at Toy Art Gallery’s showroom located at 7571 Melrose Ave. Hollywood CA 90046. Famous Last Words runs through September 27th 2015.
