“Keeping in touch with normality and focusing on what connects us together, I hope to inspire and provoke the human spirit”. - Todd Robertson
Todd Robertson is an artist born in Michigan, raised in Connecticut and loves to make custom toys. Now residing in Boston, Todd works with found objects, anything from paper to broken electronics and incorporates those objects info his pieces. Todd gains inspiration from the normality of everyday, looking for those simple connections that hold us all together. Thus his incorporated found objects are his way of relaying his inspiration from the normality of everyday.
Today, Robertson uses what he calls a "mecha" style when creating his toys. He describes his mecha concept "as if it was a virus encapsulating each individual piece. It might be an arm, a leg or half a face, the mecha virus can be manipulated endlessly." It was Todd's "mecha" style which we instantly loved when Todd first showed us the type of custom toys he creates.
Todd is showing in December at Crewest several of his custom Kaiju toys that incorporate his mecha virus. We know you will absolutely love his pieces. It was love at first with us and we hope you too have the same feeling we got.
If you have any questions or would like to view more custom toys by Todd Robertson, you may email us at email@example.com. We are always available to answer any questions you may have.
" As an artist I want to convey a message to the viewer through selected imagery, invoking any sort of response is my objective. My subject matter always changes depending on what I find fascinating, frustrating or beautiful in the world. My goal is to evolve my art, to never become stagnant." - Graham Curran 2011
Graham Curran is an artist from Torrance, CA and is showing at Crewest during December for the Crewest Holiday Bazaar. Born in 1986 Graham graduated from CSULB in 2010 with a BFA in Illustration.
When selecting the artists who were going to show for the December show, it was Grahams beautiful imagery painted on boxing gloves which really captured our eye. We saw his artwork painted on boxing gloves to be very unique and something we definitely wanted to show and display for all to see.
Look below for a sneak peak of these beautiful boxing gloves, inspired by Rocky IV, in which Graham has titled "The Fighter's".
"The Fighters" are not all we will have on display by Graham Curran. Also on display by this artist will be the above painting titled "Big Glow", a set of Russian nesting dolls titled "It’s a Zoo in Here" and a custom Munny inspired by Mad Men titled "Mad Munny".
If you want to see "It's a Zoo in Here" and "Mad Munny" as well as the other artwork by Graham, you will need to come on by and check out these pieces while they are on display in December.
