Dudebox Vinyl Collectables meet Street Art
Toys grow up as Dudebox debuts in May with a range of designer vinyl toys by some of the most exciting street artists working today. The emphasis is on giving artists a platform to create character design, graphic illustration and fine art. Based in London, UK, Dudebox work closely with global art talent, from established greats to the very freshest unknown talent.
"We want to INSPIRE TO CREATE!"
Pete Fowler, Dudebox collaborator says, "I am really happy to be launching some long awaited new toys with Dudebox, particularly as it's a UK based project. I've put all my years of experience into these as it's been sometime since I've designed any figures so I hope the world takes them to heart and clears a space in their cabinets, shelves and desktop for my little fiends."
Sichi, creative director of Dudebox says, "The beauty of these objects is they are art, produced to a limited edition which makes them affordable. It means anyone can be a contemporary art collector. The magic is that the creations are so diverse you can always find something you like."
