Here’s a look at Huck Gee's completed custom Coarsetoys Jaws figure done as a commission for a private collector. The subtle and elegant design is an homage to the art of sushi, a reference to the collector’s sushi restaurant business. Huck’s custom highlights the pivotal role of the sea through the sculpted octopus tentacles/arms which compliment the existing shark head. The painted wood faux finish gives a sense of a hand-crafted piece and ties into the purity and craft of Sushi making. The granite base serves as a classy finishing touch for the custom. An excellent piece from the inspired concept to the strong execution.

Indonesian artist Arkiv Vilmansa has been painting, illustrating and designing cartoon like figures since 2005. Shortly after finishing his Bachelor degree in Architecture he plunged into the art world citing his love for drawing figures as his inspiration for this change of career path. Arkiv had a strong debut with his first vinyl figurine called “Arkiv Instant.” After Arkiv Instant many exciting vinyl toys followed including a redesign of Mickey Mouse for Disney Asia.
Arkiv describes himself: “I’m a half animal and half dream. I’m a blend of an overweight panda and Killer whale. I eat kids and I drink bloods. I’m instantly rude and 100% dirty. I sleep longer than any creation the world has ever seen, I sleep like a dead hero and no star. I talk rubbish and my breath smells like it.”
His description reflects the same silliness and complexity of his characters. Smiling cartoons flipping you the bird. Figures strangling each other. Teddy bears hanging on a rope are just some of the oddities that Arkiv paints with cheery colors and his signature curvy and graphic style."

Internet is a wonderful place where piece of information on a single blog can circulate the world in a matter of minutes. That was exactly what happened when KAWS posted up a sneak preview of what he has been working on for an upcoming Passing Through exhibition that will take place in Harbour City in Hong Kong. More details have emerged and now there are more concrete information of the exhibition that will take place in early October.
The 5 meter tall huge Companion sculpture will be displayed on the forecourt of Ocean Terminal in Harbour City, spot lighted by four grand billboards for all the public to see during the exhibition period. Inside on the Gallery by the Harbour space, an exhibition will be held showcasing original paintings and drawings as well as display of the sculptures that were made previously.
Fans will be happy to hear that a specially designed pouch will be on sale in limited quantities as well. It features an original cloud graphic in the signature colorful and playful style that has become his trademark. Stay tuned for more details on these pouches.
