To celebrate our 2nd year at Art Basel Week, we're proud to present this new 5" Bronze Jumping Brain. They are extrictly limited to only 5 pieces, hand casted by Emilio Garcia in Spain at the ancient Vila Foundry. Only available via Black Square Gallery for 1500USD each.
One of the most beautiful things of being in the Art Toy scene is to find little and unique pieces made by other artists. For instance, Mikie Graham produced a series of 10 customized Mini Jumping Brains known as "This is your Brain". These artworks as well as Your Brain on Drugs represent the 80's anti-drug scare. Playing with the shape of the mini figure, Mikie used clear resin and a little hand painted detail to make the vinyl figures resemble as a sunny-side up egg.
Finishing off the scale illusion, Mikie found miniature cast iron frying pans that perfectly fit his mini fried eggs. Each egg, comes with a customized packaging, a black cardboard box with removable photo print mounted to its lid. Both, the figure and the print come hand signed and numbered. Made specifically for the upcoming San Diego Comic Con, with 10pcs for sale at the Dragatomi booth #4935 starting on Preview night for US$45 each.

A trip through our minds in different states of recreation and pleasure, this exhibition will delight visitors with Emilio’s brainy sculptures made of bronze, aluminium and resin, bright gloss colors and accurate love for details. OTIVM runs through June 16th.
