Yoskay Yamamoto

Post by U-A-N-V » Fri Jul 20, 2007 7:07 pm

Went by the Project Gallery for the first time ever to see the showing of Ogi and Yoskay Yamamoto. If you're in the LA area, you should go check out this show. Both artists' work are excellent, but Yamamoto's pieces are unreal. I was also told by the girl in the gallery that Yamamoto is working with them and Munky King in developing a signature toy.

You can see some of his work at www.project.bz, but the website images don't do the work any kind of justice. This is something you need to see in person.

yep, that's exactly what the girl said. I couldn't find a picture of the fish to show as an example, but it's kick-ass and y'all are going to want it. It will likely be sold from both Munky King and the gallery. She didn't know anything else beyond that.

VinylPulse has a pic of the print and some info
There will be 50 prints, and a proto of the fishhead will be at SDCC

The only question I would have is if they make it look just like this, how does it stand up?

It will be such an amazing figure, it will fly with the power of its own awesomeness.
or maybe a nice clear stick attached to a base up the rump?

If they have it standing, it would ruing it imo.

I just checked out the show this afternoon. Yoskay's stuff is incredible. I really wish I had the funds to pick up the Fish head or Black Flame OG...

Did the Yoskay print at SDCC sell out? I'd love pick one up if MK still has 'em.

Nevermind - I wont be needing the print any more, since I just bought the original :rock:

Hey - I bought it at the Project Gallery. The board won't let me post a link since I have less than ten posts, but if you head over to the site (the link is posted earlier in this thread) and click the store link you can see what I paid (it hasn't been marked sold yet) as well as what's still available from Yoskay's show.

Some of the pieces still available are beautiful and very reasonably priced. I'd be all over The Black Flame of Death if I had more money right now.

Cool, thanks!

I'm hoping my show on Friday does well enough to allow me to pick up a piece.
There's a few I'd be really psyched to get!

I love selling art to buy art. Beautiful!

That's very cool. I guess it's too late to see the show though.

Call Project - they're very cool and might be able to work something out with you. I have a feeling that Yoskay is going to blow up. People are just starting to realize how nice this show was...
