Giant Robot is proud to host Adventures in Lollipopland, a show featuring new works by Buff Monster.

Buff Monster is best known for his wheat-pasted, street art featuring lumps of ice cream, clouds, and squirting breasts. He needs just a few tones to seize your eyeballs–black, gray, white, and pinks–and his disarmingly sweet imagery has spilled over into the worlds of fashion, collectibles, and galleries, as well as collaborations for the likes of The Standard, Hurley, Vans, Helio, and Nike.

In Adventures in Lollipopland, Buff Monster is celebrating “the duality of cute and ice-cream-inspired traditional imagery, along with heavy-metal-inspired darker imagery. Some pieces are cute and fun; others are darker and more Satanic.” In contrast to his last show at GRNY, which featured kaiju-inspired characters along with a lot of writing in kanji, he considers this to be a neo traditional show. Pieces are slated to include 3 16″ x 16″ paintings, 30 10″ x 10″ wood panels, and some small, fun 7″ x 7″ pieces, as well as custom toys.

Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based magazine about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with shops and galleries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City, as well as an online equivalent.

A reception featuring the artist will be held from 6:30 to 10:00 on Saturday, April 17. For more information about the artist, GRNY, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
