Kaiju Attack ! Barcelona, Spain – Atticus gallery – June 17th -31st, 2010.
Co-Curated by Mark Nagata and Emilio Garcia.
The first of it’s kind Kaiju Art Toy show for Europe … Kaiju Attack !!!! This is just a small preview of the work that will be for sale at this show. Both Emilio and I have brought together a Global selection of awesomely incredible artists .. to celebrate Kaiju and Japanese Characters !
It’s hard to believe that Emilio and I have been planning this show now for a year.. and next week the show will finally open in beautiful Barcelona, Spain ! Alas, my plans to attend in person were not meant to be (due to family reasons) but fear not, we have great artists like Emilio Garcia, Bwana Spoons, Martin Ontiveros, Daniel Goffin and more attending !
If you interested in any of the items below, feel free to send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to answer all your questions !
Below is but a very small sample of what the artists have sent for the show.. I’ll add to this post as I get more images.. as per usual most of the art is still being worked on and sent over for the show ( you know these artists types ! ) But as you can see the folks in Barcelona are in for a real treat !

The latest update is ilanena from Japan, whose customized his Dai Kaiju Monsters for Barcelona as well as a custom Garamon…show how cool Kaiju can be !
More to be posted ! I’ve been curating these Kaiju shows now for a few years and i have to say the best part for me is meeting some fantastic artists all around the world .. sometimes I have to stop and think about how I’m able to pull together these talented folks from really every corner of this Earth… amazing ! My greatest reward by doing these types of shows is giving these artists a showcase and platform they might not have had otherwise, and of course furthering the cause and education of what classic Japanese toys are about and what the new Kaiju movement is about in a positive light. I hope you can help support these artists and Toy Karma to you all !
