ig_sf_nov_earthsquisitecorpse2014 Josh Herbolsheimer & Mutant Vinyl Hardcore November brings a stunning new solo exhibit, as well as a group kaiju exhibit! November 2014 brings us two new exhibits….a solo exhibit of new work by Josh Herbolsheimer, and a group kaiju exhibit curated by Mutant Vinyl Hardcore. Josh Herbolsheimer’s new solo exhibition, “Earthsquisite Corpse” brings the artist back to Stranger Factory for his first solo exhibition with us. His paintings have a unique, organic style that complement his toy design while giving each their own unique style and feel. Heavily influenced by his observations of nature and the elements, Herbolsheimer’s paintings deal delicately present us to the brutal indifference of natural forces. Mutant Vinyl Hardcore has curated “Nightmare Fuel”, a group exhibition of incredibly detailed hand-painted kaiju figures featuring Blobpus, Yatsuashi Shirahama, Blood Guts Toys, and Kagemaru of Dark Fantasy Undead Toys. These incredible custom-painted Japanese vinyl monsters feature hyper-detailed sculpting and paint and a subject matter that will burrow into your mind and revisit you in your nightmares long after the exhibit has closed. Press images and additional artist information are available upon request from our Press Manager. Both exhibits run November 14th – 30th, with an opening reception on Friday, November 14th from 6 – 9 PM. Some artists will be in attendance.
