The masks are tied. The ring is roped. The tights are tight, and the eggs are flying. Eggs are flying?
Chris Ryniak is about to jump off the top rope into The Beast Brothers’s Lucha Libre! show at RotofugiThis big grinned sculpture is all about wrestling and eggs apparently. From all the development images we can see why this guy is so happy.

Let’s get ready to rumbllllllle! Kathie Olivas and Brandt Peters have two killer custom pieces in their corner for the Beast Brothers’s Lucha Libre! group exhibition opening next month at Rotofugi. The dynamic duo decided to mix it up this round, submitting two solo works: a Lucha Greeter from KO and a Mega Lucha Mask from BP, which is quite the opportunity — custom Mega Skelve masks don’t show up to a card all that often. So get yer tickets and place yer bets: the Chi-Town showdown takes place Oct. 5th!

Say Cheese! A WIP from CMR for Lucha Libre! @ Rotofugi 10.5

Chris absolutely nailed his critters for Monsters & Misfits II and he doesn’t look to have lost any momentum with yet another original figure in the works, this one a Luchador for The Beast Brothers’ Lucha Libre! group exhibition opening at Rotofugi Oct. 5th. This guy is certainly not shy of showing off his gap-toothed grin!

Really looking forward to seeing this sculpt finished —  not only to quell my curiosity of what lurks beyond the frame, but he looks to be a fair-sized figure. Scale is always hard to determine in photos, but the pic below suggests there’s a pair of arms jutting out the front on the body, reminiscent of this guy (aka my absolute ALL TIME favourite CMR sculpt EVAR). … More visual stimuli soon!

Lucha Libre! runs opens Oct. 5th through the 28th at Rotofugi Gallery in Chicago. Participating artists also include The Beast Brothers, Angry Woebots, Brandt Peters and Kathie Olivas, BurunDANGA, Eric Merrill, Huck Gee, Jime Litwalk, Joe Capobianco, J*RYU, Junko Mizuno, Kronk, Michael Motorcycle, Patrick Cornolo, Phil Young, Sara Antoinette Martin, Scribe & Alisa, Mr. Shane Jessup, Shawnimals, Sket One, Sourbones, TADO, and Tim Tsui.
