Patient No.6’s Project Red & White is Funded & Ready for Sale

Project Red & White Series by Patient No. 6

You might remember that in April, Kiev, Ukraine-based toy artist, Patient No. 6,¬†¬†launched an indiegogo campaign to fund his Project Red & White toy series…and he reached double his goal! Consider this one a triple triumph:

  1. Logistically, it’s another successful application of crowdfunding for toy art.
  2. Conceptually, it’s a score for the creative people who resist the homogenization and lobotomization of the Institution.
  3. Aesthetically, it gave Patient No. 6 the funds he needed to produce his most ambitious psychiatric art series to date.

Patient No. 6 writes that he has completed production on the series, and the initial shipment of toys are on their way to the indiegogo backers.

It was fun to watch the indiegogo fundraiser unfold. The project surpassed its goal with only 6 backers. When the project closed, it had reached 12 backers who bought a combined total of 37 figures. I’m impressed with the idea that an artist with a unique idea, passion and drive all the way in the Ukraine can realize 200% of his goal by getting the word out to just 12 people. It’s very inspiring if you think about it.
