Portuguese creative agency, DDB Brazil, designed these amazing adverts for the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) Art School. The three ads depict Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso pinned akimbo for dissection. Their internal organs, naturally, match each painter’s personal style. Brilliant.
Out of all of Jason Freeny’s toy dissections, I think this 2-foot dissected Kewpie Doll is his most radical transformation. By cutting away half the cute, Freeny reveals twice the creepy. Below (at right) is Freeny’s prior execution of a Kewpie. Above and below left is his new 22-inch Dissected Kewpie which looks less like a custom toy than a medical school teaching tool. Amazing.
This is pretty rad. Like KAWS. Like anatomy. Like girls. Like costumes. Check check check check. These images are circulating around the Internet, and based on the Hennessy bags in the background, I’m assuming these real life KAWS dissected companions were part of the attraction during the launch party for those KAWS x Hennessy bottles.
These two KAWSY ladies look great, but the blonde Companion in the top photo is the most intriguing. She kind of looks like KAWS + Bjork + Jem & the Holograms.

One has to reserve exclamations like “sick” and “dope” and “OMG” for appropriate occasions or else he risks diluting their delicate and nuanced meanings. That said, this is SICK!!! At the risk of sounding like a sycophant, how awesome is this hand-sculpted, hand-painted original Eyezon figure by Mark Nagata? Remember these 2D Kaiju Anatomy drawings he did earlier this summer? Drawing, sculpting and painting: what can’t Nagata do? (Pair down his Ultraman collection, perhaps?)
The one-off Eyezon is made of apoxie sculpt and vinyl with Monster Kolor paints. You can see it with your own eyes this Saturday, September 24th at the Heteromorphism kaiju art event at Double Punch Gallery in San Francisco. Check out a work-in-progress photo below.
If you thought Jason Freeny’s PEEPLs were too original, and what you’re really seeking is original + nostalgia, he’s currently selling a handful of his one-off pop culture dissections. You’ll find dissected cutaways of his recent babydoll, plus Yo Gabba Gabba’s Muno and the ubiquitous plumber, Mario. Support working artists, and be just like Conan O’Brien! All figures are available here.
