Evil Ugly Monster Show at the UGLYgallery



October 9 – November 1, 2014
Artists reception: Saturday, October 25, 2014

AHA Night! Get here or the internet will beat you to it!!!!

UGLYgallery is proud to present the Evil, UGLY, Monster Show featuring work curated by MCA of Evil Design and Matt Walker of Monster Kolor from over 40 local, national, and international low brow and designer toy artists.

Toys are not just child’s play. The collector designer toy market has been steadily growing since the late 90’s, and our guest curators MCA and Monster Kolor have been there every step of the way. MCA’s roots run deep in the urban contemporary art game. Over the past 20 years, he has produced toys, tees, prints, and stickers, lots and lots of stickers! His evil ape and qee zilla, produced by Hong Kong designer toy company Toy2R, are great examples of the evolution of his work as an illustrator. The development of the sketch that then became a sticker on a street corner, that then inspired the design of a vinyl toy has taken him around the world and back again. His career thus far has quietly been published in numerous books, landed him on stage teaching thousands, and in shows around the world representing his vinyl toys, stickers, and illustrations. Matt Walker of Monster Kolor has turned hobby and passion into an industry leading paint company. Combining his love for pin striping and custom painting, Monster Kolor, has developed a superior quality paint that has taken the vinyl toy industry by storm. Now represented in multiple countries and all over the US, Monster Kolor has brought his industry and creativity to a new level. 
These two have put together a spectacular cast of artists whose works reflect the designer toy industry’s development. From three dimensional vinyl and wooden toys, to wall art, fiber art, photography and works on paper, this show encapsulates all the facets of the vinyl toy movement. With over 40 artists in the show, there is sure to be something here for everyone.
Please Join the UGLYgallery in celebrating the Evil, UGLY, Monster show. We will be hosting a preview show on October 4 from 6-9, and an artists reception on October 25th from 6-10. This exhibit will be on display until November 1st. Monster Kolor will also be hosting a pin striping workshop on October 25th from 3-5 as well.
