Artist Feature: Josh Mayhem
Josh Mayhem’s latest Blown Away Dunny Series is now completely sold out on Kidrobot.com! Check out our Q&A with Josh Mayhem to learn more about his creative career!
Well, as with a lot of art toy collectors I know, Kidrobot’s toys introduced me to this amazing world of art, especially the Dunny. I’ve always loved creating art, and collecting toys, so discovering this toy being used as a canvas for a wide variety of artists was very exciting, and I was instantly hooked. It only seemed natural to have a larger run Blown Away series released in collaboration with the company that originally inspired me to create this style of art.
A series of Blown Away pieces followed until one day a collector of mine suggested that I lose the stand, which I have to agree looks better. The Blown Away style is continuing to evolve, and a big benefit of having such a large blind box release is being able to introduce a wide range of new colorways and designs as chase variants.
I’m inspired by anyone in the art hustle making a living solely off of their love for creating amazing things. Doing what you love to do is a gift not everyone gets to enjoy. I’m so grateful and humbled that I’ve recently been able to experience that kind of freedom.
I was a Drum & Bass DJ and played pretty regularly in the Los Angeles DNB scene back in the day. I have most off my old DJ mixes up on my website you can stream here: http://www.joshmayhem.com/djmixes. LA Junglist Massive represent! BOH!
