Blobpus Inner Monsters show @ Kaiju Blue

Kaiju Blue is running a show (goes through Jan 19) featuring the work of Blobpus and friends. This is not your everyday custom show. The toys themselves have been altered using materials and techniques rarely seen in the sofubi scene. On top of that, there are so many mediums on display (including yarn + multimedia!) that the exhibition feels more like a fine art show at a modern art museum.

At the very least, Inner Monsters takes us out of our comfort zone, stretching the bounds of what a "toy" is and showing us the work of artists you're not likely to see at, say, Superfestival.

OK, let's get to the pics. (Click each image to see the full size.)

Many more pics after the jump:

Something out of the pages of Heavy Metal!

Maybe my favorite piece.

The yarn crew represents in raw style.
