There were a ton of people and I didn’t stay long because it was crowded and I didn’t really know anyone. The gallery is in the basement of a store specializing in vinyl toys. They have one display case dedicated to Secret Base and Super 7, my favorite because of their fidelity to the old school kaiju toy tradition.
All the customised figures were amazing. The level of creativity of some of the artists was staggering. Artoyz offers a limited edition of some miniture sized element figures designed by some local graffiti stars. Check out the owl sugar skull and the ice cream cone:
The ice cream again and this cutie designed by Koralie:
Here’s a line of crazy cool ones.

One of my favorites was the girl with the sunglasses but the best by far was by Paulkaiju:
My little cupcake is going to be on show starting tonight. I will get some photos to share with you. If you’d like to purchase a figure to decorate yourself please contact artoyz.
As promised here’s the results of the customisation project:

I finished up the last piece this weekend and packed everything up. Now I’m on my way to the post office. I will post all the paintings on the date of the opening at Outré Gallery.
I don’t get the chance to show in my home town very often, so this is a special event for me. Wish me luck to finish in time!
I will take some photos at the opening to share with you!
I’m participating in a group show at Outré Gallery in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia. Here’s a sneak peak at a painting that I’m so excited about!
Contact the gallery if you want to be put on a waiting list for my paintings for this show!

The art show will coinside with a book release, signing and art show for my friend Angelique Houtcamp.
I’ve got so many exciting projects in the works all at once!
I’ve just started oil painting and the box you see is one I just bought to hold all my tubes and mediums. I’m really having fun with it.
I have 5 paintings to do for a group show in October.
I’ve got three panels inked for my comic.
And I’ve got a vinyl figure to paint for a show here in Paris.
