Alien Argus Custom Show Feb. 26th

Metallic Machinations Preview: Cris Rose

A staple in Toy Art Gallery’s custom shows and permanent collection, Cris Rose proves once again why he’s one of the best customizers in the world with a diverse and beautiful collection of heavily modified vinyl toys and original resin creations!

Metallic Machinations opens Dec. 11!

Toy Art Gallery is proud to present “Metallic Machinations”, running from December 11 2010 through January 11 2011 and featuring work from Cris Rose, Phu, DrilOne, Jester, and Rohby. These artists are known for their robotic, rusted, gritty aesthetic which is applied to a wide array of designer toys, action figures, original resin creations and more.

Come on out and enjoy some mechanical mayhem on Saturday, December 11 2010 from 7-11 pm. We’ll have music, a food truck, and many of the artists in attendance.

Stay tuned to the TAG Blog for previews!

Collection Addition: Cris Rose

Amidst the activity in preparing for his first US gallery show (see previous post), Cris Rose managed to ship  this incredible assortment of beautiful toys to us! Cris is definitely one of the top customizers in the world. His work has a clear concept, top quality workmanship, and a respect for the original toy that sometimes is forgotten in custom work. His original resin designs are equally clever, with numerous embedded objects and artifacts that follow his omnipresent theme of environmental awareness and conservation.

Make sure you check out his work at Rivet, and keep checking back for some more cool Cris Rose news.
