Andy Kurovets – W.A.Y.N. (4.15.07)

 wayn_5

Andy Kurovets
has just unveiled his upcoming W.A.Y.N. resin art toy.  The curious piece features a crouched Ninja playing with a paper boat. Intended as a reflection “…about life, about solitude and childhood”, the piece seems to also touch on issues of paths chosen and not chosen and perhaps about inner peace and external turmoil. The unexpected juxtaposition of a Ninja, typically a fearsome warrior, with the tranquility implied by the paper toy should catch eyes and start conversations.  W.A.Y.N. (50 pcs,  3.94 “) will drop on April 15th 2017 for $65 (includes shipping) from the artist’s Castbreeder site.
