DESCRIPTION

April Flores’ Love Toy is Canvas for Eight World-Renown Artists in Single Night Gallery Show!

La Luz de Jesus presents a unique, one-night-only exhibit featuring limited-edition artist renditions of leading Big Beautiful Women (BBW) star April FloresVoluptuous CyberSkin Love Toy. Eight, world-renown, Los Angeles-based artists are designing one-of-a-kind creations, using plaster molds of the April Flores toy as their canvas. Participating artists include Axis, Carlos Batts, Coop, Jim Mahfood, Kime Buzzelli, Kozyndan, Misha, and Small Paul. The exhibit will take place on May 13th at La Luz de Jesus Gallery, and will be guest curated by Carlos Batts.

“Creative interpretations of the female anatomy are fundamental to art,” explains Carlos Batts, Curator. “Specifically, this project was inspired by the irony of Jeff Koons’ work and the playfulness of the Dunny movement, as well as by April herself. In this exhibit, April provides the blank canvas on which each artist has the opportunity to express his or her vision.”

April Flores has starred in numerous films and has been featured in countless magazines. Voted one of Fleshbot’s Crush Objects, she has a massive and rabid following within the BBW fan community. She is the first BBW star to be molded by Topco Sales. The eight April Flores pieces will be unveiled for the first time, and made available for sale, on the evening of the event.

Each artist has invoked his or her signature style in designing a one-of-a-kind creation.
