Releases: Joe Ledbetter – 12″ Mutant Bunny (Hand Painted) Part II

Several months ago, we brought your attention to the first set of hand-painted mutant bunny sculptures from Joe Ledbetter. The LA-based painter and art toy mogul has not released the next five of what will be an eventual total of 40. The 12″ figures (sculpted by Pretty in Plastic) are priced at $1500 and should be the crown jewel in the collection of any fan of Ledbetter’s three-dimensional work.

Releases: KAWS – “Joe Kaws” Vinyl Figure

Since the Dissected Milo set was released back in February, KAWS hasn’t released anything on the vinyl toy front, undoubtedly due to focusing on his fine art and recent solo Hold the Line. That will all change next week with the release of his Peanuts homage to Snoopy, aptly dubbed Joe KAWS. The figure, who’s release was effectively set in stone over a year ago with the release of an OriginalFake x Peanuts Joe KAWS t-shirt collaboration to mark the 60th Anniversary of the Charles Schulz […]

Openings: Lazarides Minotaur Event @ The Old Vic Tunnels

A couple nights ago, the Minotaur event put on by Lazarides kicked off at the The Old Vic Tunnels, also the site of 2010′s Hell’s Half Acre exhibition. This time around, the theme was an old Greek legend and depending on your choice for price of admission, dining was included from top Michelin-starred chefs. Of course for us, the art was the focus of the night including offerings from Stanley Donwood, Jonathan Yeo, Antony Micallef, Conor Harrington, Doug Foster, 3D, Ian Francis, ATMA, Michael Najjar […]

Releases: Aiko – “Lady Butterfly” Sculpture (Black)

If you remember, we previously reported on the limited edition and intricate Lady Butterfly sculpture (produced by Tomenosuke Sho-ten) from Aiko Nakagawa earlier this year. The initial silver colorway easily sold out on Valentine’s Day, but the newest black version (limited to 10 each) was released just hours ago 1.00pm (JST) on September 16th and retailed for $550 here. If you are too late to purchase this piece, don’t despair. This is only the second colorway in a planned five colorways so you still have […]

Releases: Joe Ledbetter – 12″ Mutant Bunny (Hand Painted)

Releases: KAWS – “Dissected Milo” Vinyl Figures

In a project that most have been aware of for quite a while, it appears that the KAWS x BAPE Dissected Milo figures will see the light of day very soon. With the character appearing on a series of shirts from a few years back, and also getting a reprise with BAPE’s 2011 Spring Collection, it was only a matter of time before it was manifest in vinyl form. Coming in at 8″ in height and most likely produced in the same editions of the […]

Details: KAWS x Robert Lazzarini – “Distorted Companions”

In case you missed it yesterday, KAWS put up for sale his latest release – a set of collaboration figures with Robert Lazzarini. Unfortunately, they quickly sold out. But lucky for you, AM ran down the delivery man in order to provide a detailed look into the “Distorted Companion” figures (previewed). These jaw-dropping works blend KAWS’ iconic Companion with Lazzarini’s signature distortion treatment. The three figures were released each in three different colors: brown, gray, and black. Also, each Companion received a unique mold to […]
