"MadKat IV" (#HelloKitty Custom) by Klav9 for "Code Red" Show at My Plastic Heart in NYC
Kevin Derken AKA Klav9 shares with us his custom for the coming "Code Red" Show at My Plastic Heart opening this week in NYC. Featured above is a slideshow video I made while below are words from Kevin himself, and still images.
FYI: Kevin will be at the opening on Saturday in New York City and the piece will be for sale (Price Pending). He added; "I am working on another version which I will have available at FivePoints Festival in June." You might want to stay connected to his Insta @klav9 for updates!
"My piece, (which Quiccs titled "MadKat IV") is a hacked apart and kit bashed Hello Kitty TEQ (from Kidrobot) and 6" TEQ63 (Martian toys). Aaron (from Martian) planted the idea in my head a few months ago and it seemed like a no-brainer. After I cut the head open, and cut the legs off the 6" Teq, Quiccs suggested I give it weapons. I removed the vinyl arms and replaced them with new robotic arm guns. The inside of the head was turned into a cockpit for pilot with various bits and pieces from my massive stash of plastic model kits."
