10/05/2012 – “This Temporary Moment” New Works by Brian Flynn



Toy Art Gallery is proud to present “This Temporary Moment” New Works by Brian Flynn. As the owner of Super7 and Hybrid Designs Bryan Flynn has long been a force in both graphic and toy design, combining his love of 60’s modernist illustration and vintage japanese toys into a style that is all his own. For his first solo exhibition at TAG Brian will debut a number of new projects as well as roll out the return of old favorites with a massive Super7 retrospective exhibition.

New works to be featured include massive fiberglass pieces, original hand-painted resin toys, custom painted vinyl toys, silkscreened print editions, and more!

Brian Flynn –
My art serves two functions both thematic and functional. The first is to document the moments of our spirits as they transition from one plane of existence to the next. The keys, locks and gateways of the planes of being are navigated by a wide variety of otherworldly entities, transporting all lost souls to Ghostland. Secondly, and most importantly, is to imbibe the viewer and/or recipient with a fixed sense of place and time —in short, to create a memory. These memories are eternal and carry on long after the experience of interaction is over. Whether through painting, prints, toys, sculptures or photographs, the end result is to make an experience the viewer will remember, allowing our lives to live on together, and the spirit to not be forgotten.

Please join us and Brian Flynn for the opening on Friday, October 5th from 7-10pm at Toy Art Gallery’s showroom located at 7571 Melrose Ave. Hollywood CA 90046. Refreshments will be provided.

‘This Temporary Moment’ runs through October 25th.
