          What is Toy Art 2.0?

          Collaboration • Customization • Community

          Before 2.0: In the late 1990s, young Hong Kong designers began swapping G.I. Joe's army fatigues for hip, handmade streetwear. In the early 2000s, American lowbrow artists embraced toys as a medium for art multiples. By the middle of the decade, illustrators, graffiti writers and rock poster artists were releasing their signature characters as toy art.

          Today’s toy artists defy categorization. Thanks to six letters (W.W.W. and D.I.Y.), previously passive collectors are now active participants in their own global community. Toy artists paint plastic from San Francisco to New York, pour molds from Moscow to Manila and carve wood from Bali to Zurich. Toy art is forged in foundries in LA and found in quarries in France. Creators, collectors and curators mingle online. Art becomes accessible. The exclusive gets a bit more inclusive. With a wink to Web 2.0, we distinguish the current scene from its ancestry.
