The toy is made of 10oz artist canvas and will be displayed alongside a piece of the artists' 2D work (canvas, print, drawing).
On Monday 4th June at 6:30PM - 10PM, a launch party will be held in celebration of delivering art toys to a wider audience. By showing the artists' 2D and 3D canvases Bodhi sets out to display how artists deliver quality execution across any media they use. It is also an introduction to the public of the sub-culture phenomenon that is the art toy.
The public will also be invited to become artists. The real-world flyer will double up as a template of the Bodhi toy to be coloured in, painted, scribbled, doodled upon and displayed on the "audience wall". A gallery favourite will be selected with prizes for the winner!
