AMOS MINIATURE PLASTIC WORKSHOP
Following their recent opening in Japan, Amos bring their Miniature Plastic Workshop to KK Outlet, London.
For the first time in London Amos will showcase a retrospective collection of their plastic and vinyl classic toys alongside a pop-up store selling a few long sold out Amos collectables rarities and difficult-to-find products. There will also be an opportunity to have photos taken with a couple of exclusive, 5ft Caleb figures specially created for the workshop.
AMOS artist James Jarvis will exhibit recent drawings in KK Outlet’s side gallery. These drawings represent a catalogue of James Jarvis’ interests and obsessions of the past two years. Whilst featuring some familiar faces, they also reflect his concern in taking character design to new and different places. The gallery will offer a rare opportunity to buy original Jarvis artwork.
Amos was set up in 2002 by James Jarvis, Sofia Prantera and Russell Waterman as an art and design driven alternative to the Silas fashion brand. Amos has produced some of the most iconic vinyl toys including the In-Crowd, a homage to modern pop culture; YOD, the ultimate art toy, each figure coming with an explanatory essay; Vortigern’s Machine, a children’s comic book adventure about two young friends and their epic adventures; the mighty King Ken, nothing more and nothing less than their very own popular ape icon; and Caleb, who first appeared as one of the In-Crowd Young Ruffians collection, and more recently graduated to music festival poster boy and star of his own daily comic strip blog.
A selection of vinyl toys, drawings and other delights will be available to buy throughout May at KK Outlet.
