FriendsWithYou: Inner Vision In Between @ MCLEMOI Gallery (2.16)

Pretty In Plastic loves a challenge, and we were absolutely thrilled to help FriendsWithYou create these pieces for their exhibit at MCLEMOI Gallery in Australia. From their website:
MCLEMOI Gallery and FWY are pleased to announce “Inner Vision in Between”, the exhibition of FriendsWithYou’s first Australia solo show, opening in Sydney on February 16th. This exhibition is a reflection of a journey from one chapter to another. Sam and Tury jump into a vortex of the unknown, further highlighting the true mission of creation with the embodiment of the living amulet. Animism plays a large role, as FriendsWithYou continues to explore artifacts of the archetype; minimal, peaceful, stoic, and sometimes foreboding. FriendsWithYou’s works for this exhibition span the spiritual gamut from play to ritual.
Running February 16th until March 30th, 2013

Pretty In Plastic Installation for 85th Academy Awards "For Your Consideration" Collaboration

We're incredibly pleased to show off the custom lightbox installation that we created as part of "For Your Consideration", a collaborative exhibit and project between Gallery1988 and the Academy Awards Their first collaborative exhibition featuring art inspired by the 2012 Best Picture Oscar® nominees, on display February 14 through 17 at Gallery1988 Melrose in Los Angeles.

Pretty In Plastic Light Installation - "For Your Consideration"

 "created to represent the CMYK color model (Cyan-Magenta-Yellow-Black) used in offset printing for full-color documents (like the screenprints, silly). All 4 sides of the box light up to represent each color. Pretty amazing stuff." 

 It's been making the rounds and we're truly flattered to have gotten so much love for this piece. It's been posted and mentioned and even landed on the official Tumblr for The Academy!

The piece will be lit up all week in the window of 7021 Melrose, so drive on by and check out our 7+ foot tall tribute to the Oscars.

Pretty In Plastic Featured in Design Bureau Magazine

We're incredibly flattered to be featured in the February 2013 issue of Design Bureau Magazine, thanks to toy lover and writer Jeremy Brautman! Jeremy was kind enough to write a great piece on our studio and talk about some of the great projects we've been lucky enough to help produce. 

Perfect start to the weekend. :)
