USA-centric art collection of @toykio on display in Berlin, Germany
It was a weird week, and here’s how it looked in 50 photos in today’s
Instagram Roundup. The incredible toy art collection of Selim Varol continues to be installed in its summer museum home in Berlin. Os Gemeos challenges Sever’s mural with some graffiti on a train. FriendsWithYou says goodbye to Miami for the art scene of LA, but meanwhile San Francisco had a huge weekend for art. In an odd coincidence, not one, but two, baseball bats are featured in this IG Roundup. Click through for art, toys, cats, bats and Courtney Love. Have a great weekend!

Fuck FWY and the rest of that crew they’re taking with them. Seriously. They are NOT starving artists trying to break on the scene. They have made it. They are established. They are successful. They go all over the world all of the freaking time. A move to LA or NY is nothing more than a greedy stint. Who the fuck cares if a chunk of your collectors aren’t from where you’re headquartered? If you really care about your hometown the way they SWEAR they do isn’t that more reason to stick to your damn guns? Bring the people here. Draw them out time and again. If you make good work, they will come. And you can show others, yes you can be a successful artist here, anywhere. Because good talent is good talent and will always have a market. I used to support them in such a big way but seriously fuck them and their hypocritical greedy asses.
