Super-Bastard Box Art Characters

Super-Bastard Box Art Characters are a set of paper toys created by Malaysian designer Undoboy. Extremely creative and well illustrated with well known characters amongst the set.
Consists of 16 unique toys in one set, with 4 unique characters on each face of the box. Collectors have an opportunity to collect all 16 toys/64 characters in the series. Each toy is individually placed in a sealed box (blind assortment).

They are produced in a limited edition with only 1000 copies of each toy on the market.

Each toy is made with heavy card stock plus matt lamination and stands 4” in height.

Characters include Uncle Sam, George W. Bush, Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Queen Elizabeth II, Mother Teresa, a mummy, a Japanese wrestler, a cave man, dominatrix and so on.

The head and pants are detachable, so you can mix and match the characters to create some hilarious outcomes!

Françoise Nielly

Françoise Nielly’s gigantic and immensely colourful portraits are mesmerizing. She paints on canvases with dimensions as large as 78 x 25 inches (195 x 62 cm) from black and white photos/images which only adds to the emphasis of her ability to decipher light, shadow, hue and tone by applying vibrant bold strokes with a palette knife to her blank canvases.

The following excerpt is taken from her personal website which I really hope you visit as there's a huge array of artwork available for viewing as well as a video demonstrating her methods as an artist.

"Françoise Nielly's painting is expressive, exhibiting a brute force, a fascinating vital energy. Oil and knife combined sculpt her images from a material that is, at the same time, biting and incisive, charnel and sensual. Whether she paints the human body or portraits, the artist takes a risk : her painting is sexual, her colors free, exuberant, surprising, even explosive, the cut of her knife incisive, her color palette dazzling."
