"Located at 157 W. 24th Street and open from noon until 7:00PM each day, the shop — aptly titled ‘lots of stuff in a store’ — is set to coincide with Deadmau5’s ‘lots of shows in a row’ tour which opens for a four-night, sold-out run at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom tomorrow (Wednesday 29th March)."

"The deadmau5 x Ron English GRIN will also see it's debut in lifesize fiberglass at the pop-up shop! The 4 foot tall fiberglass Grin is hand-made in Indonesia to exacting museum-quality standards, each individual piece painstakingly formed, sanded, and painted by master craftsmen. A Toy Art Gallery feature in our lifesize works is to preserve the playability of their miniature counterparts. This means multiple points of functional articulation, such as the arms, body, and needle points of the Grin, and play features like the adjustable floating UFO platform. The completed lifesize fiberglass figure is intended as the cornerstone of a contemporary art and designer toy collection."
"The deadmau5 GRIN merges the unmistakable imagery of pop surrealist painter Ron English with the iconic avatar of Deadmau5, synthesizing art and music into its most playable form. Toy Art Gallery, in collaboration with LiveNation, Deadmau5, and Ron English, spent three years on the develop of the Deadmau5 Grin project, from original concept to soft vinyl toy."
