During his lifetime, Andy Warhol was not shy about expressing his love of collaborating with other artist. The Factory was a melting pot of different creative minds who came together to share ideas. Whether it be with musicians (The Velvet Underground), movie stars (Edie Sedgwick) or other artists (Jean-Michel Basquiat) Warhol considered the art of collaboration as a means for new creative inspiration to arise.
And now thanks to The Andy Warhol Foundation, the work of Warhol is starting a new partnership with Kidrobot.
The collectable vinyl art and designer toys of Kidrobot are known worldwide as unique signature apparel and lifestyle accessories. Action Figure Insider describes Kidrobot as “…not only a powerful medium for today’s international fashion designers, illustrators and graffiti artists, but also the creative canvas for emerging street trends and pop art…”
President of Kidrobot, Bob Africa, has described this collaboration with The Andy Warhol foundation as ‘a true honor’.
The collection will both include vinyl and plush pieces sporting a number of iconic pop art images. Die-hard collectors can also be on the lookout for a mini-Andy Warhol Dunnie doll. The collection will be debuted at both The Museum Store Association Show in Atlanta this April and at this summer’s San Diego Comic Con.
However these unique collectables will only be available for purchase in stores and online at Kidrobot.com this August.
