Buff Monster Customs – GR2

Yowza! Giant Robot posted a sneak preview of an upcoming Buff Monster customs show at GR2. I spy Junko Mizuno.

I spy Camilla D’Errico.

I spy Travis Lampe.

GR2 will announce full details later, but I’m already loving what I see! GR2 is really kicking ass and taking names with their shows this year.

Thinkspace: Artwalk Culver City 2010

Scott Radke is another purveyor of creepy/cute, and his sculptures were one of the highlights of Artwalk Culver City. His artwork is so fascinating that it invites people to touch his pieces. (I actually witnessed this.) We saw his work at Thinkspace Gallery, which was filled to the brim with artwalkers.

Yosuke Ueno‘s work is always exciting to see. I took a few pictures of the show, and you can see them here.

Familiar Strangers – Yoskay Yamamoto

Familiar Strangers” is Yoskay Yamamoto‘s solo show at LeBasse Projects. I especially love his hand-carved wood sculptures.

“Do you remember me?” is his interpretation of Astro Boy. This is hand cast solid polished metal and limited to 10 pieces. He shared a little bit about the process on his blog. Completely fascinating work.
