Josh Mayhem's lifelong habit of collecting children's playthings has fueled his passion for transforming said toys into objects d'art. Among his best-known pieces are those constituting his “Blown Away” series, in which mass-produced forms are covered in strands of resin and layers of acrylic paint to create gravity-defying drips that give the impression of the work being deconstructed by a strong wind. The popularity of this asthetic has led to Mayhem being nominated for Designer Toy Awards, participating in TRASHed: Art of Recycling at Coachella Festival, having a solo exhibition at the world famous Clutter Gallery in Beacon NY, as well as the esteemed Bruce Lurie Gallery in Los Angeles CA, and partnerships with the premiere worldwide creator and dealer of limited edition art toys, Kidrobot.
