Thought Processor- Primate Exploitation





Here's my contribution for the "Thought Processor" paper toy show opening on Thursday, 9/3/09 at Munky King store and gallery in LA curated by my buddy Phoneticontrol!

I thought it'd be fitting to revamp an old t-shirt design "Primate Exploitation" since the show is at Munky King ^_^

In case you were wondering, the Chinese characters 猴 means monkey and 吼 means to scream.

Along with this custom paper toy, I will also be showing the original painting- www.flickr.com/photos/martinhsu/2672998228/in/set-7215760...

All of the Thought Processor designs will be available for FREE download on my website www.martinhsu.com and www.phoneticontrol.com later so feel free to explore your inner Xacto knife and Krazy glue skills!

I'm super stoked on how it turned out and hope you dig, too! See you on opening night! ^_^v

Sweet Streets- Art inspired by Japanese street fashion

If you're a fan of Harajuku or just Japanese street fashion then you've got to go check out "Sweet Streets" opening this Saturday, 8/29/09 at Gallery Nucleus!

"Gallery Nucleus is excited to be hosting “SWEET STREETS,” a fanciful exhibition that will take inspiration from the Japanese fashion subculture.

Rather than follow trends, the youth of Japan have blazed a fashion movement. By mixing old with the new while customizing and combining the homemade with designer labels, their looks result in the unexpected and avant-garde. Art-inspired fashions and fashion-inspired art is one of the most creative symbiotic relationships of our generation. Co-curated by CARO and sponsored by Hi-Fructose magazine, over 40 artists will contribute to this event in celebrating imagination and originality."

The lineup of artists includes Tim Biskup, Tokidoki, Kozyndan and many other amazing talents! Be sure to go check it out if you're in town ^_^
