Our childhood memories have a cool upgrade with this figurine dedicated to one of the cutest Smurfs...
"Come to the land of the Smurfs, little blue beings, come to the land of the Smurfs, where everything is wonderful [...]". The song may stay in your mind but here no blue on the horizon just a beautiful figurine taking up the chara design of the shy Smurf. With his eternal flower and his embarrassed look, this Peyo's character inspires artists like Laurence Vallières who makes it a reinterpretation as arty as pop.
Her favorite medium ? The cardboard she uses with skill and finesse to give life to a contemporary bestaire. If this sculpture was originally carved with yoghurt wrapping paper in Beijing, you will find it in polyresin thanks to her collaboration with the publisher Thundermates.
With a 200-piece edition and priced at $ 150, A Sense of Urgency by Laurence Vallières and Thundermates takes you right on the path of nostalgia.
