A Tribute to Ed "Big Daddy" Roth

Big Daddy has left something that will live on forever. After forty years, Rat Fink fever has gotten in our heads, on our speedways, in our skateparks–there is no cure. We've gone on to become artists, filmmakers, mechanics, executives. He's become an action figure, a bobble head, a race car, a doll, and has achieved timeless cult status along the way. At first it may have seemed that Rat Fink was originally drawn for us to laugh at, as a throw away cartoon. Now he's the one laughing–Rat Fink's Revenge indeed.

This collection of Rat Fink statues is taken from the book Rat Fink's Revenge. The project originated as a way for the author and four score contemporary artists to exorcize their inner Fink–the sick monster inside who needs to come out and show itself to the world. All the contributors, for whom Rat Fink is part of their soul, were given the same 12" resin model kit to customize.

La Luz de Jesus Gallery is proud and honored to present this collection based on Ed Roth's most notorious Custom Monster.

The exhibition will also include collectible and vintage toys, archival illustrations and pieces of Rat Fink history.
