Toy Invaderz custom show June 30th in Chicago

We've been working with Emmanuel White Eagle (Cyberphunkk) for some time now, and it's finally time for him to curate as he puts on his very first group custom show: "Toy Invaderz" will take place June 30th in Chicago!

Emmanuel says: 
I have spent the past year and a half networking and admiring the works of artists in the toy community. From across the continent- US to Latin America and in Chicago itself- delving into the world of custom and original toys, enjoying and loving their creative input and determination, seeing and becoming a part of this art and its community and where it's headed. So after being around it and making toys myself, I decided in 2011 to start looking for a space to curate and launch an independent toy show in Chicago. I wanted to showcase customizers and independent toy makers from all over the world that are up and coming.
The idea is to bring more exposure to the Chicagoland area of the toy scene and the artists working in toys. I wanted to introduce more people to the movement in Chicago since there is not much of a custom toy scene here.
This event hasbeen created and curated by yours truly (Emmanuel L White Eagle, aka cyberphunkk). I recruited some very talented artists- from already established to up-and-comers.
 I have partnered up along with our beloved Tenacious Toys (www.tenacioustoys.com) to host and blog our online gallery and toys, exposing this show nationwide & worldwide via the web.
And this event will be hosted in Chicago thanks to the support of Quennect 4 Gallery who are the ones hosting our event, partnering up with all of us artists to help us bring this toy show to life..
The event will be proudly exhibited at the fresh and collaborative gallery space RGB Lounge.
