The character theme for this collectible is Kavinsky aka The Dead Cruiser is the french DJ know for the song "Nightcall" from the movie "Drive"! But "Why Kavinsky?" you may ask? I did, and this was what the artist Fakir Olivier shared with TOYSREVIL;
"I chose to work on Kavinsky because I like of course his work, electronic music but especially for the atmosphere that we find in his clips (Deadcruiser, TeddyBoy, OddLook, Outrun ...) and especially on the character "Teddy Boy" who embodies these references to 80-90 video games that I played on megadrive or super nes during my childhood (and even today to be honest ^ ^)."
"Also by aesthetic choice, for the visual power of the character in two colors (red and blue) with a work of shadows very pronounced / strong which also allows me to explore another technique of painting and rendering. It fits / glue / match perfectly to my character series revenbecks / brawlers wearing teddys jackets on which I am currently working." - shared FAKIR.
The imagery is inspired by Kavinsky's "1986" EP, fueled by the delicious retro-80s electronica heard throughout his work - official audio featured below, including the one tune I was utterly fascinated with; "Nightcall" from the film DRIVE (from his 2011 album "Drive")!
