Introducing a 1st Look at XIONG MAO The Collectible from The Chung!
@iamwetworks debut the first look at the painted XIONG MAO by David Chung AKA The Chung! Scheduled to be on display at the coming Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Con (8-9 Sept 2018), "Xiong Mao" ("熊猫" in Mandarin, and pronounced "Xióng māo" - which means "Panda") is sculpted by @bboyblackz and Wetworks, produced by Carlo Andrada Cacho himself!
This looks to be the 2nd character vinyl produced by Carlo (after his own his own FOXY IN KAWAII), and I'd HIGHYL recommend you folks to stay connected to his Instagram @iamwetworks for MORE reveals and surprises to come down the pipeline! ... (*I can't tell y'all anything more than that :p)
"Xiong Mao" is an original character by The Chung, whose earlier three-dimensional incarnation was sculpted and painted for a 2015 show in Flower Pepper Gallery (SWIPE to view images below), and currently adventuring on in The Chung's paintings (All additional pics via wowxwow.com).
I made this little shark rider in 2015 for a show @flowerpeppergallery. I only made two of these casts. Originally sculpted with sculpey, then fully cast in resin. Even his little accessories were cast in resin. This thing was heavy too. You could drop it on the ground and it wouldn't even chip. I've tried it (by accident...c'mon, it was heavy). Thanks @iamwetworks for reminding me about this piece the other day! . #tbt #art #artoninstagram #sculpture #resin #sculpey #panda #shark #smoothon
