Vulgaris Mortem: A Sofubi Art Toy Exhibition

Vulgaris Mortem
This December, Violence Toy and Krotpong Industries will team up with Guzu Gallery to bring you a one day day only event featuring soft vinyl art toys!

The event will take place on Saturday, December 3rd, following the Friday night opening of Strange Beasts IV – the fourth installment of Guzu’s highly successful kaiju & Japanese pop culture themed group art show. The team has assembled an exceptional cast of talented toy makers for this exhibition…and cannot wait to reveal their many outstanding works of art!

Black plague, funerals, winter, death…these are the themes of Vulgaris Mortem. Each artist was asked to follow a pair of plague doctors on their dark journey to inspiration. Where they chose to go from there was entirely up to them.

This will be a one-day-only event, where those attending can take their purchases home at the end of the evening, or in-person at their convenience at a later date. Following the show, each piece that is still available will go on sale online for a limited time.

Sales will start as soon as the doors open and will be followed by a live musical set from surf rock kings and kaiju enthusiasts, The Del-Vipers. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.

Stay tuned to Guzu Gallery’s Facebook & Twitter for more info and sneak previews as the days get closer to show time!

Brad reads?! Road trip bk 6; Snotgirl v1. I’ve been told this book wasn’t written for me and I agree, though I’m still intrigued. Fashion blogger. Severe allergies. Mystery medicine. Powers? This book sells great and I’m really interested in what happens next. I’ll grab v2. https://t.co/91EUqOnibC AustinBooks photo

Brad reads?! Book 5; Thor God of Thunder v1 by Jason Aaron & Esad Ribic. This reminded me of Thor comics when I was a kid, with a fresh threat to Odinson. Norse history, modern threats, really enjoyable. The only problem I have with this book is that I didn’t bring along book 2. https://t.co/0hzUB6efRn AustinBooks photo

Brad reads!? Road trip book 4; Manhattan Projects v1. Alternative history with parallel dimensions and an evil (redacted)? I’m in. Really enjoyed this volume by Jonathan Hickman and Austin’s own Nick Pitarra. Highly recommended for fans of speculative fiction, or kinetic art! https://t.co/vT4eomVYmo AustinBooks photo
