Lapin World Tour: Chicago

a mr clement exhibition

Opening Reception on Friday, May 16, 2014, 7-10pm; Artist Signing, 7-8pm

We are pleased to announce a new exhibit with London and Hong Kong-based artist mr clement, who will be presenting a new series of paintings in his ongoing Lapin World Tour.

mr clement received his Master of Arts degree from the Royal College of Art, London, in 2009, though he had already made a significant splash among designer toy collectors with the release of 2003's Astrolapin. mr clement has since produced a series of exhibits, art toy releases and graphic novels featuring his often surreal take on life as seen through a series of animal characters.

The newest stop in the Lapin World Tour follows exhibits in Hong Kong (2000), Paris (2003), London (2004), Sofia (2011) and Los Angeles (2012) and will feature 25 new paintings in addition to a selection of sculptures, both new and old.

The opening reception for the exhibit will be held on Friday, May 16, 7-10pm. mr clement will be in attendance and will be signing figures and books for fans from 7-8pm. The exhibit continues through June 14, 2014.
