I’m a huge fan of LEGO, and a huge fan of MUJI, so this was essentially a no-brainer for me. That said, I did (ostensibly) get it for my 6-year-old daughter. Luckily, I’m pretty sure she enjoyed this as much as I did. This one is the “Move” set and there are two others available online. I would caution that it does a) require a hole punch and b) involves some pretty finicky scissor-work so it’s pretty appropriately designated as 6+ toy.
Tomorrow afternoon there is a one day pop-up Hello Kitty art exhibit opening at LA’s own Known Gallery. It’s a book release too. Should be interesting!
I still haven’t made it over to the LALA Gallery space yet, and they’re already about to unveil their second exhibit. PUBLIC WORKS opens tomorrow evening, and features contributions from the likes of How & Nosm, Insa, Revok, Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Trustocorp, and many more. Initially, the murals will be on view at the gallery space, (Aug 3 – Aug 17) and after that they’ll go up on billboards around the city.
Speaking of talented people doing big things, SF-based artist Hannah Stouffer (interviewed) is opening a new installation at Kinfolk Studios in NYC tomorrow evening. It’s by the same folk who do Kinfolk Bicycles, and it’s a gallery space located in Brooklyn; 90 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211. 7pm-12pm. Her recent work looks absolutely stunning.
Very appropriately timed for today’s date, New Image Art gallery in West Hollywood unveil new work from secretive artist NECK FACE tonight. The event also includes new prints, free drinks, costumes (optional), and probably lots more blood splatters. The event only runs for about a week, so don’t dillydally if you’re a NECK FACE fan.
