    You've seen the designer toy movement but it's just taken a new turn into uncharted territory. U1 Toy Arts, the company behind Nathan Hamill’s BORIS (reviewed HERE at Figures.com) brings a new breed of collectible to the table. Or should I say wall?


    "Letters From LA" is a new line of art collectibles which was created to showcase one of the most important aspects of graffiti art - LETTERING. These collectibles are designed to represent the actual artwork by working closely with each graffiti artist, thus creating a three dimensional sculpture that is true to each artist's style and vision.


    The first of these graffiti walls is titled VOXER and is designed by artist Vox One, a Los Angeles native who has been creating art over the last twenty years and is featured in LA and Europe. The actual piece is sculpted by Dave Kawano and captures a true representation of Vox's angular linework style.


    VOXER is a hand painted resin sculpture limited to only 500 units. Each wall comes in three pieces that include the VOXER lettering, a wall background, and a base with the artist's name.


    There's a number of ways to display the wall. All three pieces combine to create a piece that can sit on a shelf or table top, or you can mount the wall and letters or just the letters independently onto any wall surface.


    Each wall comes in a heavy card stock box with fitted padding separating each piece. The look of the box resembles the feel of a letter from LA, of course, and provides safe keeping and protection when not displayed.


    As mentioned above, the VOXER wall is limited to 500 units and runs $85 each. You can see these units and more at WonderCon this weekend at the U1 Toy Arts booth or purchase online at www.u1toyarts.com or wholesale through DKEtoys.com.


    The collectible wall is a novel concept and very well executed. It also serves as a pretty great backdrop to some of your favorite toys. A second "Letters From LA" piece featuring the art of Man One will be released soon.
