Giant Robot announces that they will be hosting The Monster Within, an art show featuring reinterpretations of work by Buff Monster by his friends.
Buff Monster is best known for his wheat-pasted, street art featuring lumps of ice cream, clouds, and squirting breasts. He needs just a few tones to seize your eyeballs - black, gray, white, and pinks - and his disarmingly sweet imagery has spilled over into the worlds of fashion, collectibles, and galleries, as well as collaborations for the likes of The Standard, Hurley, Vans, Helio, and Nike.
For this exhibit, the Los Angeles artist is asking 49 of his artist friends, peers, and colleagues to customize three-inch toys based on his work. Collaborators will come from various fields and countries.
A full-color, limited-edition poster will also be made available to commemorate the event and capture the one-of-a-kind pieces.
An opening reception attended by Buff Monster will take place from 6:30 - 10:00 on Saturday, July 10.
