Inspired by electron microscope images, macro photography and the often mind boggling weirdness of the insect world. We present an entirely new body of work, a synthesis between the design of Tokyoplastic and the central motif of Emilio Garcia's work; the brain. The future and past collide with multicolored brain bugs in candy flip paint that hark back to the early days of collection and categorization of weird and wonderful bugs, brains and strange critters. The show opens at the Toy Art Gallery on the 9th of March 2013.
Additionally, Emilio will present his Skull Brain for the first time on the West Coast. So mark your calendar for the 9th and come on out and enjoy cerebral insects.
Emilio Garcia’s OTIVM will open Thursday 10th of May at Artoyz Paris. There will be a new series of more than 20 pieces that will explore the leisure in colorful brain mappings. 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.
