WEBBO BOOK AND CUSTOMS

afrontcover2small

Toyhacker is a 100 page full colour book full of bizarre sculptures,twisted characters, dystopian dioramas ,kit smashes ,mutated models and weird custom toys,  every page is different to the last and encompasses the many facets of Webbo’s practice .

The book provides a window into a world most people grew out of but nostalgically wish to return to, it purposely rejects the restraints of what is expected in the mainstream art world  at the same time as paying homage to it with sculptures that would suit a high brow galleries wall within the same pages as strange art toys that would look at home on an eccentric  collectors mantle piece.

Toyhacker is  available for £15 from HERE along with many of his toy hacks subversions and sculptures.

ANA MARIA “AMORFO” SHOW

4-flyer-amorfo-rectangular

International Art events producer JUSTKIDS continue their mission to bring high quality Contemporary Art on an international scale   and chose Puerto Rico’s vibrant capital San Juan to produce the highly anticipated solo exhibition of Puerto Rican and US based visual artist Ana Maria.

The renowned artist has been traveling and painting all over the world these last 4 years. England, Mexico, Hawaii, Ukraine, Sweden, Italy and the US to name a few, have witnessed and cherished her talent. She comes back to her native island with a brand new body of work entitled “Amorfo”.

With her usual cynicism and sincerity the artist explores the delicate subject of love and it’s devastating complications through a collection of stories and romances performed by her iconoclastic subjects, both innocent and obscure, hopeful and disturbing. Amorfo is quite possibly the representation of our own monstrous humanity and lurking animality that is always creeping within our dark desires and fantasies, that Ana Maria, like a master in her craft, presents while revealing herself within her work.

The exhibition, curated by Charlotte Dutoit and produced by JUSTKIDS, is on view from December 15th through December 30thThe opening reception with the artist in attendance will be held on Thursday December 15th at 7pm at the JUSTKIDS pop-up gallery, 201 Calle Cristo, Old San Juan.
