Bwana Spoons in dedication> Tuesday June 30

Bwana Spoons Take the road this summer with in its suitcases its first solo collection titled "Welcome to Forest Island" and published by Top Shelf Productions.

Tuesday June 30, the American -based American artist will make a stopover at Artoyz to sign Swe deliver.

144 pages, colorful including paintings, cards, sketches, comics and more, all dedicated to the world that Bwana Spoons has created for so many years around his forest island. The universe would not be complete if there was not its Croco-Baleines, the peak cicadas, the farmer who was closed recently, and a brutal bat that plays the battery in a proto-metal group. His style tinged with psyche-flood colors exploding the chromatic palette with the end of her brushes allows him to create the most incredible bestiary we met.

In addition to his book, the artist will bring with him customized figurines, and some goodies sold out. And above all, Bwana Spoons will be hot potato!

He specially prepared for us (so for you), some Killer, his favorite whale that collectors around the world tear. Discover the interview we had done a few months ago with Bwana Spoons (Part 1 / Part 2) And below a little reading for those who are not familiar with his universe ... Come many Tuesday 30 from 6 p.m.! "Bwanas spoons' paintings jumped from the leaf to the figurine! Since he tried a volume, he can no longer stop. Its style, without difficulty mixes pastel/candy colors with others more basic and the result is striking! His characters therefore seem to take literally life and get straight out of the forest.
