|For the 6th year in a row, Kidrobot will be awarding the winner of the Breakthrough Artist category with a production run of their very own Dunny design! Past winners of this prestigious award include Double Parlour, 12 Dot, and Horrible Adorables.
“As long-time supporters of Clutter and the Designer Toy Awards, we are thrilled to see our community have this wonderful opportunity to come together year after year,” said Amy Johnson, Kidrobot’s Director of Marketing. “Every DTA Dunny show brings out fresh talent and new achievements, from the award show, to the DTA Dunny exhibition, we are more than proud to be a part of the festivities.”
As part of their ongoing sponsorship of the DTAs, Kidrobot will also be teaming up with Clutter Magazine to present the 4th Annual DTA Dunny Show to be showcased at Five Points Festival.
Artists are being given rare blank vinyls, in 5”, 8” and 20” sizes, to customize, showcasing the jewel of the American art toy scene, the Dunny Platform! This year’s line up of international artists includes many new individuals who have never before participated in this prestigious show.
“The Dunny will always be a platform that artists aspire to create with,” said Miranda O’Brien, co-founder, and editor-in-chief of Clutter Magazine. “Its silhouette is instantly recognizable, and the name Kidrobot brings a gravity to an artist’s career that is undeniable. We are so excited to once again team up with the fantastic team at Kidrobot to give artists the opportunity to showcase their talents to the audience of Five Points Festival. The DTA Dunny exhibition has become a show that both Artists and Collectors covet, and we are proud to see it continue.”
