RHR-PRESS: “Cultivated by two mad scientists, Nervis Wrek + Jay222, this could be the most chilling exhibit ever attempted.. mutants unlike anything you have ever seen before! You may be frightened, you may be delighted. Come see them if you dare..”
...Nervis + Jay both have really unique styles – grotesque meets urban meets horror movie monsters ... Both artists typically use Munnys as a base, but by the time figures are completed there is so much sculptural addition or mutilation that pieces take on a whole new life.
