Coolrain Lee held court in the weekend Art Toy Culture 2015 (April 17-19) in Seoul, Korea with a showcase of his work for various names and brands, including NIKE - with the tagline "Everybody Needs Break Time" and Air Max Day custom pieces.
A boxed table/showcase of his own favorite things lies in the center of his booth display, surrounded by his truly retrospective array of his career, including collaborations with other artists, for AMOEBAHOOD, and of course his signature 1/6th scaled hand-made sneakers! Living his motto; "No Life without Toy" :)
Posted here are a variety of shots from his Instagram @coolrainlee, many of whom were also reposts of fans' snaps - which to me is (an online) measure of an artist's work being accepted and celebrated by folks, IMHO.
AIR MAX DAY
Popped by Affordable Art Fair today to visit my friend ZXEROKOOL - who is the official "Resident Artist" at this event - which meant he had a whole booth to his showcase his own work, found on Level 2 (where you can also leave your mark and doodle on paper available at the table in his booth).
Here are some snaps to peep, along with other game contraptions to the side of his booth, and his LKY-"action figure" blister-card themed artwork. And you'd tanned a chance to win one print by having your self taken at his booth, with yourself as an "action figure"! You folks can peep for yourselves before the event closes tomorrow Sunday at 6pm :)
The Affordable Art Fair is a ticketed event - find out more on http://affordableartfair.com/singapore/
And if you find that red & white colored Ice Cream van at the main entrance at F1 Pit Building "interesting", it's branded with ZXEROKOOL as well, including his own ice cream haha (SGD$4 per tho - but hey's it's "Artist Branded"? :p). Thanks for the fun, J! We catch up real soon!

"The wonderfully talented Lisa Rae Hansen of iBreakToys has once again unleashed the rock legend MegaSeth on ToyConUK. This time with a startling new look. Seth has unleashed his inner dark-side with his MetalHead look.
fugi.me will have 3 Metalhead MegaSeths, each in a unique colour-way. Priced at £50 each, they will come in their own presentation box and the heads are on magnets so can be posed and turned as you see fit. We don’t expect these to hang around long, so make sure fugi.me is at the top of your hit list on the day." - Daniel Perry (Jazzydan) at www.fugi.me
Available at the coming ToyCon UK (April 25) via the Lunartik booth #22 are a new "BUNMY" resins (seen above) and as well as "Fans Of Tea" Artist Series 4 - whereby there will be on display 30 x Mini Teas customizer by 15 artists!
Check out two customs from Lisa Rae Hansen posted below!
Kasey Tararuj AKA One-Eyed Girl shares her latest custom piece; "SLIMER" - done for the "When the Lights Go Out 3" show at Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY (opened April 17th) - whereby the show features artwork under black lights with glow in the dark touches.
"My piece is a 4.5" Custom Mad Slimeball Sqwert, painted up with glow in the dark and neon paints that glow nicely under a black light . I couldn't have picked a better character for this, since the GID paints make him look super slimey in the light. My favorite part is how silly he looks in the light compared to how evil he looks in the dark. He'll be for sale at the show or online afterwards at the gallery!"

"Tell me, do you bleed? You will…" - Official Teaser Trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
The Official Teaser Trailer for Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has been released, earlier than the scheduled April 20th date (perhaps because of the "leaked" version? In that case HURRAH FOR LEAKS!), and this has turned out to be a tremendously awesome weekend, what with the trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" launched yesterday! Will the internets break?
Meanwhile, check out screengrabs HERE on FB, and make your way to their following wwws: batmanvsupermanmovie.com and www.facebook.com/batmanvsuperman for more of the same :p
Zack Snyder's BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is in theaters March 25, 2016.
