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, multiple releases with Kidrobot; the premiere worldwide creator and dealer of limited edition art toys, 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 a solo exhibition and artist residency at the esteemed Bruce Lurie Gallery in Los Angeles CA, and an exclusive partnership with China's leading art toy retailer, 1983 TOYS.
