Guzu Gallery x Violence Toy x Krotpong Industries Presents ‘Vulgaris Mortem: A Sofubi Art Toy Exhibition’ (Dec 3 - One Day Only)
EVENT PRESS: ”This December, Violence Toy and Krotpong Industries will team up with Guzu Gallery to bring you a one day only event featuring soft vinyl art toys!
The event will take place on Saturday, December 3rd, following the Friday night opening of Strange Beasts IV — the fourth installment of Guzu’s highly successful kaiju & Japanese pop culture themed group art show. The team has assembled an exceptional cast of talented toy makers for this exhibition...and cannot wait to reveal their many outstanding works of art!
Black plague, funerals, winter, death...these are the themes of Vulgaris Mortem. Each artist was asked to follow a pair of plague doctors on their dark journey to inspiration. Where they chose to go from there was entirely up to them.”
