September 17, 2008 | Posted in Past Shows & Events | 1 Comment

Nov. 14th – Dec. 7th, 2008 Opening Reception: Friday, November 14th, 6-10pm

Subtext has teamed up with Zakkamono, to bring you an incredible custom vinyl show just in time for the holidays. The format will be the new Miao (Lucky Cat & Mousubi), and we  have curated nearly 50 artists from around the globe to do custom versions of this great toy! Miao is the first collectible designer vinyl figure designed by Zakka. It is an updated design of the Japanese Maneki Neko/Lucky Cat (an iconic Japanese figure that brings good luck and good fortune). Miao measures 7-inches tall and comes with his BFF Mousubi, a 3-inch character designed with the elements of a musubi/onigiri (Japanese rice ball wrapped with Nori/seaweed) and a mouse. We are slowly receiving the customized Miao’s, and this is shaping up to be an insane show. The one pictured above is from our good friend Sandra Equihua, and it is amazing! Stay tuned for more sneak peeks.
