More than 160 Customized 10" D.I.Y. Bart Simpson Qees by Artists and
Designers from across the globe in celebration of THE SIMPSONS arrive in
China for the next stop of the BART QEE Worldwide Tour .

Mark Fairwhale hosts the January China 1st stop of the D.I.Y. Qee
Project: BART tour presented by TOY2R and ID2R. TOY2R, ID2R and
Mark Fairwhale have assembled a virtual "who's who" list of today's hottest
pop culture artists, designers and illustrators from around the world.
Each original figure has been painted, sculpted, and customized to illustrate
each artist's own unique re-interpretation of the iconic character, Bart Simpson,
using as a blank canvas the 10" D.I.Y. Bart Simpson Blank Platform Qee Figure.
Many of these artists have either grown up watching THE SIMPSONS or were
inspired by its creativity, humor or sardonic look at life. To bring these original
creations to the fans, TOY2R and Diamond Comics launched this worldwide
art gallery tour stopping at respected galleries and art boutiques across the globe.
It is time we show the China what is Art Toy from around the World!
being the First internation Bart Art Show - it is sure we will birng in
the brain storm to china the power of Art!

The re-interpretation of Bart Simpson, the classic animated icon
created by Matt Groening almost 20 years ago, not only celebrates the
first feature length film based on THE SIMPSONS, which has grossed
nearly $500 million in worldwide box office receipts, but also marks
the launch of the licensed line of Qee figures based on THE SIMPSONS
characters.

The Bart Simpson Qee tour has already been to LA, New York, Paris,
Florence and Rome. The D.I.Y. Qee Project will continue with an additional
show in next Important City in China! The show will finally end in
Guangzhou on March 2008. At the end of the tour, a majority of the
customized figures will be auctioned off and all of the proceeds will go
to charity.
