We Are Not Toys
The name We Are Not toys is a play on words, on a few different levels, but mainly about the struggle that the custom designer toy artist goes through in this newer genre of contemporary art. Each piece you see here may have started with a vinyl toy skeleton, But with the help of the artist's hands has become a one of kind original piece of art. The materials needed at times being way higher in price. Time spent sculpting and painting all angles of a figure sometimes far exceed that of a canvas. When your final piece still referred to or considered a "toy", It is a challenge for an artist in this genre to make a living or charge even minimum wage for your skill or talent.
Our Goal is to help the custom designer toy scene gain the same type of respect as painting or sculpture. while time may do this by itself we plan to help things along by providing affordable and desirable options to the collector and artist alike.
