They said they were going to do it—and they did. Argentine artists and founders of Entusisasta Gallery, David Pugliese and Jésica Cichero, will release their first art toy, the pirate Milbatallas, July 11th at the MuHu Museo del Humor in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The idea for the art toy Milbatallas, meaning “thousand battles” in Spanish, popped into illustrator David Pugliese’s mind a few years ago with a sketch. Like any avid fan of collectable figures, when the opportunity arose to make an art toy, he couldn’t pass it up. After teaming up with sculptor Pablo S. Sapia, they created the first edition of 20 copies casted in resin, bringing his dream to life.
The official presentation of the art toy will be on July 11th 2015 at 4.30 pm at the MuHu Museo del Humor, placed in the old Münich brewery’s building at Av. de los Italianos 851, Puerto Madero, C.A.B.A., Buenos Aires, Argentina. Event guests include illustrator Jeremias Janikow and renowned comic artist, Enrique Alcatena. For those not in Argentina, the pirate Milbatallas is available by e-mail orders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, what can we learn from this? 1. Kidrobot is not the only art toy on the planet. 2. More importantly, don’t just dream it—do it.
