TOYGIANTS is far more than just a book about toys and designer vinyl.
The second Silver edition, you can nab your copy with a few extra bonuses! Daniel and Geo teamed up with collector Sleim Varol to cull from his collection of over 10,000 pieces. The cast ranges from more contemporary American comic heroes, manga superstars and designer-vinyl creations to Star Wars heroes, movie characters and political figures. With a playful style towards their subjects, Daniel and Geo have brought a peculiar reality to their fantasy world: Andy Warhol’s famous haircut is trimmed by Edward Scissorhands and close-up portraits of fictional heroes like Batman, Hulk and Rambo sit alongside real life villains such as Hitler and Saddam Hussein. There are also monumental group shots, some of which fold out to be almost a yard wide. Organized by color, these reminiscent of traditional yearbook photographs – but with far more visually enticing alumni.
The second edition of TOYGIANTS is being published as a Silver Edition by Gingko Press. The Silver Edition includes previously unreleased artwork from the TOYGIANTS series, including a removable poster and an exclusive interview with the artists Daniel, Geo, and Sleim. To celebrate the book release, Daniel & Geo Fuchs are presenting in co-operation with artempus con-temporary gallery, Düsseldorf, the exhibition TOYGIANTS at Gingko Press’ own gallery Rebel Arts Gallery in Hamburg. The exhibition goes through July 31st.
