CHATSWORTH, Calif. - Topco Sales presents a unique, one-night-only exhibit featuring limited edition artist renditions of leading BBW star April Flores' Voluptuous CyberSkin Love Toy. The exhibit is set for 7-9 p.m. May 13 at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery, 4633 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles.
Eight, world-renown, Los Angeles-based artists are designing one-of-a-kind creations, using plaster molds of the April Flores toy as their canvas. Participating artists are Axis, Carlos Batts, COOP, Jim Mahfood, Kime Buzzelli, Kozy & Dan, Misha, and Small Paul.
"Creative interpretations of the female anatomy are fundamental to art," said Batts, curator of the exhibit. "Specifically, this project was inspired by the irony of Jeff Koons' work and the playfulness of the Dunny movement, as well as by April herself. In this exhibit, April provides the blank canvas on which each artist has the opportunity to express his or her vision."
April Flores has starred in numerous films and has been featured in countless magazines. Voted one of Fleshbot's Crush Objects, she has a massive and rabid following within the BBW fan community. She is the first BBW star to be molded by Topco Sales.
"When Topco Sales molded April to make her toy, we knew we were breaking new ground. Partnering with her and C. Batts FLY to present this exhibit seems like a natural next step," said Desiree Duffie, director of marketing and public relations for Topco Sales. "This show provides an inspired arena in which to play with such provocative issues as beauty, sexuality, intimacy, pleasure toys and more. I can't wait to see each artist's work."
The eight April Flores art works will be unveiled for the first time, and made available for sale, on the evening of the event. Each artist will invoke his or her signature style in designing a one-of-a-kind creation.
"Celebrating my phenomenal new Voluptuous CyberSkin Toy with all these amazing artists in the flourishing L.A. art scene is a dream come true," Flores said. "I am so excited and honored by this event and, I promise, the unveiling of the pieces is going to be a must-see!"
