I’m intrigued by this strange toy designed by French graffiti artist Alëxone, sculpted by Julien Moreau and produced by a Jeremyriad-favorite, Artoyz. The 6×9″ vinyl figure is called French Lowrider. There is a can-wielding penguin behind the wheel and five smaller, wack-a-mole-style, penguins in the hood.
The first edition of the French Lowrider (150 pieces) will be available for preorder at Alëxone’s solo show, Y a Pas Photo, which opened yesterday at Galerie L.J. in Paris.
It’s likely that an allotment of the figure was held back for sale through Artoyz online, as well as Artoyz retailers. While we’re waiting, Hi-Fructose posted a studio visit with Alëxone. Check it out here.
