This Is Not A Toy

Not too sure if it’s my love for quirky toys or attraction to bright colours and patterns (like sparkles and magpies), but I’ve now got a slight obsession with this exhibition…

They say that this is the world’s first large-scale exhibition dedicated to urban vinyl as contemporary art.

“Pharrell’s involvement is really due to the fact that he’s so passionate about the genre and explains that urban vinyl and collectible design is what brought him into the world of contemporary art.” – Shauna Levy, Design Exchange President.

What’s there not to love…

Much better than Blurred Lines I’d say – looks like the guy can do more than just dance around with topless models. Check it out if you’re in Toronto please, it’s on until May 19.
