Yoskay Yamamoto’s Joke’s On Me opened this past weekend at LeBasse Projects. Last week, I wrote about the show and made this comment:
I love iconic childhood characters as much as the next pop culture art blogger, but Yamamoto’s entirely original creations are even more wonderful.
Ummm…I take it back. I love Yamamoto’s pop culture sculptures just as much as his original creations. Check out his re-imagined sculptures of old-school icons (Winnie the Pooh, Bob’s Big Boy, Stay Puft), new-school characters (Pokemon, Bart Simpson, Hello Kitty) and even designer toys (T9G’s Rangeas, Frank Kozik’s Labbit and Uglydoll’s Ice Bat).
