Toy Art Gallery is proud to present Music to My Ears, a celebration of art and toys in honor of Super Cooper’s birthday! “Music to My Ears” is 14-year-old artist and curator Cooper Berella’s 5th art show. Cooper asked over 70 artists from around the world to consider music and how it affects their lives and their art.

“As an artist and curator myself, I love music because it helps me power my creative circle. In other words, it helps me think of ideas and controls my art. Music can soothe me through trance, or pump me up with dubstep. This can cause effect on my characters and ideas by giving me expression. The expression leads to many ideas that transfer into my art. I hope that this show, “Music to My Ears,” will take you through that same journey and through a trip of music wonderland.”

Music to My Ears features the following artists:
100% Soft, Adrienne Gates, Alice Koswara, Alyson Flescher, Anthony Ausgang, babyvtec, BeeFy, Bella Berella, Big C, Brian Castleforte, Butch Adams, Cameron Edison, Chikuwaemil, Chris Granillo, Christopher Bonnette, Dani Bowman, Dave Bondi, Dave MacDowell, Dave Pressler, Donna Letterese, doubleparlour, D-rock, EMMELLDA EOS, Eric Broers, Erica Wexler, Frank Schaefer, FrankenFactory, Germs, Gift Riley-Norman, Hints & Spices (Shane Haddy), J Salvador, J*Ryu, Jay222, Jermaine Rogers, Jorge Guitierrez, Josh Marlar, Josh Mayhem, Juan Muniz, Kenth Toy Works, Kevin Dickson, Kii Arens, Lap Ngo, Leesasaur, Lola, Marta Harris, Martin Ontiveros, Matt Hawkins, Mike Die, Mike Slobot, Mikie Graham, Misha, Munktiki, Mylene “I Got Sole” Tolentino, Naoto Hattori, Nathan Hamill, nati513, Obscure, Plasticgod, Podgypanda, Rampage Toys, Rick O’Brien, Shayne Maratea (Blamo Toys), Shelby Barrett-Whitmore, Spencer Hansen (Blamo Toys), Super Cooper Berella, Taskone, Them Dollz, Tim Clarke, UNCLE, Yoskay Yamamoto, Yuu Tihara, Zieromuko
