We were stopped in our tracks when we found MP Gautheron’s instagram page. The vibrant colors and fine details of her pieces are something of a special kind of art. We immediately reached out to her in the hopes of bringing the Kidrobot.com audience of collectors a unique custom Dunny series and were more than thrilled when she agreed to do a set of 38 individual custom Dunny’s for Kidrobot.com. Below you will find an exclusive photo sneak peek of the specialty Dunny series named The 38 Custom Dunny Collection by MP Gautheron.

About MP Gautheron:
MP Gautheron is a French artist based in Lyon, France. She has always been immersed in an artistic environment, as her mother is art professor and painter. Since her childhood she has navigated between her mother’s classes and art schools. As a painter and sculptor, her graphic universe is a mix of skulls, animals, nature and patterns.
After seeing a skull filled with colorful pattern, a French toy collector asked her to paint a designer toy. This was the beginning of her venture into the world of customizing art toys.
Her toy customizations are filled with colorful hand painted designs and some even react to black light. Recently she has began adding sculpts to some of the toys, bringing a new dimension to her customs. Today she juggles between her paintings exhibitions and her toy customizations.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
