Toyism - Lumited Editions


"I play, therefore I am in this" is the motto of a group of artists from all over the world, creative, innovative, spectacular. And full of secrets. In a world where all information is within the click of a button, they know how to preserve room for mystery. In a world where every artist wants to be seen, anonymity is required. They are atypical, colorful, but very serious at work. They seek change and strive to make the world a better place. They create spectacular works of art and ask the viewer to sit in their minds. Public institutions, hotels and schools in the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Beijing and Peru, a 22-meter-high gas globe, walls from different continents, a water tower in Iceland have all been transformed into great works of art.

Where to Find a Trail


In ancient Chinese paintings, in addition to the magnificent landscapes with huge smoke, it is common to dot the scene and occasionally scatter the paintings. They either travel far away, or watch mountains and waterfalls, or graze under trees, or play games among the clouds, or take a break in making tea, as if the painter picks the dots at will, and has the finishing touch, so that the static picture seems to flow with the movement and gaze of the characters.
