Ok Geek Nation all you NYC TRI STATE AREA local Kidrobot & Dunny collectables fans, this is HUGE!
The Five Points Festival, is a designer toy and comic convention and lands on Pier 36 in Manhattan’s Lower East Side the historic “Five Points” district you might remember from Martin Scorsese’s “GANGS OF NEW YORK”. (And you’ve just had a history lesson!) Five Points Festival is excitedly announcing an exclusive production Dunny designed by Gary Ham, set to release at Five Points Fest, May 20th-21st!
The Five Points Festival features a dynamic lineup of counterculture artists and artisans from around the world. Enthusiasts familiar with art toys will have the chance to meet some of the world’s most iconic artists and brands like Huck Gee, Kidrobot, James Groman, Jason Freeny, Ron English of Popaganda, Simone Legno of Tokidoki, Super7, Tara McPherson, and Mighty Jaxx on the show floor, where they will be featured alongside artists from the U.S., Japan, Germany, Korea, the U.K. and elsewhere, some showcasing in NYC for the first time, and all with unique, original pieces for sale.
The festival’s ‘Artist Alley’ will be an intimate, curated showcase of some of the most notable comic and toy art from mainstream and independent creators across the world’s emerging pop art scene – with participants including Annie Wu, Bryan Lee O’Malley, Cliff Chiang, Khary Randolph, Magdalene Visaggio, and Sean Gordon Murphy. Anyone who has attended mainstream art shows or comic cons will find something completely unique at Five Points – a gathering of visual innovators, rebels, creators and the misfits who are driving the future of commercial, counterculture art.
So who the heck is Gary Ham? Why should I care? Glad you asked! With a deft hand and a keen eye for character, Gary Ham quickly established himself as a unique voice in the pop and toy art world. His characters
and illustrations evoke a bold, 1960s animation style of delivery while still maintaining a modern sensibility. His ability to present the appeal of nostalgia without relying on the past is uncanny, and fine art collectors are just as eager to snap up his work as toy collectors.
Available in three colors, and limited to 1000 pieces total (across the three versions), the Ghost Rider inspired design is the first production Dunny created by Gary Ham released into the world!
The yellow and black (Designer Toy Awards) colorway (shown above) is the Five Points Festival VIP Exclusive that is included in the Five Points VIP Package!
