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 and signing of the 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.”
