DC Collectibles Reveals New 2018 ‘DC Artist Alley’ Line At Five Points Festival
Designer super hero toys — meet street art. Announced over the weekend via an exclusive reveal at designer toy and comic convention, Five Points Festival, DC Collectibles is teaming up with some of the most talented independent artists in the industry to launch the new line, DC Artist Alley.
Inspired by the popular comic convention experience, DC Artist Alley will serve as an artist-focused vinyl statue line that merges indie design with the most iconic characters in the DC Universe. Serving up highly detailed, limited edition PVC figures, the first wave of releases will launch in 2018 and will feature a reimaging of seven classic characters – three from each artist, with more artists to follow.
“The motivation to create a line celebrating radical new artists stems from years of visiting cons and being impressed by the raw talent and artwork on display,” says Jim Fletcher, Executive Creative Director, DC Collectibles. “When we decided to launch DC Artist Alley, we approached visionaries we felt would best represent the line, while bringing their own creative signature to our classic characters.”
Designs will include illustrator Chris Uminga’s offbeat interpretations of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, Barcelonian-bred artist, Sho Murase’s stylish designs for Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, and HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque’s exaggerated designs on The Joker, Batman and Harley Quinn. Each figure will also be accompanied by a print showcasing its original artwork.
