About Curtis Kulig Bearbrick – Medicom Toy – Love Me Set of 2 (400% 100%)
This Curtis Kulig Bearbrick is a limited edition from the Japanese collectible toy manufacturer Medicom Toy.
Curtis Kulig is an American artist from New York City. His signature “Love Me” message has been printed on Medicom Toy’s 100% and 400% Bearbrick in this collectible set. A decade ago, his private plea ‘Love Me’ became part of the urban fabric of the city. A loyal audience ensued embracing the declaration with hope and optimism making the mark a global icon. His studio practice consists of several mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, film-making, neon text and film photography. In 2018 he collaborated with Grear Patterson and Yves Scherer on a group show called “Happiness”. In this show he debuted his self-help series with a collection of mixed media work. They are collage-like mixtures of harsh brushstrokes, emotive sketches, and a mix of found photographs. He also created a video for the show, 36 Men, which displays thirty-six men demanding love.
Later that year he showcased his work in a solo exhibition at Galerie du jour Agnes b.called Prize. The exhibition featured an installation that included more than 30 drawings, ceramics, a large-scale painting, and an 8mm film in which Kulig invited Aska Matsumiya to develop a soundscape.
