For the first time in Hong Kong, K11 Art Mall presents an unconventional realm of art toys in collaboration with New York-based award-winning toy designer Jason Freeny, showcasing over 100 art toys and sculptures that highlight his signature “dissected” art style. Known for his anatomical deconstructions of some of pop culture’s most iconic characters, “Outside In: An Unconventional World of Art Toys” is the most comprehensive showcase of Jason Freeny yet.
In its first phase, the showcase will feature Freeny’s anatomical deconstructions of incredibly iconic characters. To bring the spirit of this unique showcase home for the holidays, the “Outside In: An Unconventional World of Art Toys” experience will sell over 100 art toys by Jason Freeny, including special limited-edition collectables made in collaboration with design studio Mighty Jaxx and the K11-exclusive limited-edition “Dissected Popek (Metallic White & Silver Edition)” by Whatshisname and Jason Freeny.
Be mesmerised by Freeny’s fascinating world of juxtapositions at the “Outside In: An Unconventional World of Art Toys” experience store, including a three-metre-tall Elmo Snow edition installation, first-in-Hong Kong life-sized sculptures of beloved characters such as Luffy and Popek, as well as a rare collection of computer concept artworks from Freeny’s workspace that reveal his creative process and unlimited imagination! Explore how Jason Freeny’s characters are born from scratch through a collection of his never-seen-before hand-drawn sketches and paintings. Early-bird tickets are available until 20 November at K11 Kulture Academy.
