MAN-E-NEWS// The Painted Face resin multiple from Big Trubble x Anser…

painted-faceweb

Toronto based Laird Henderson aka Big Trubble has teamed up with established local street artist Anser for the release of the Painted Face resin sculpture! Based on the artist’s reoccurring character of the same name, the stunning 6″ tall piece was sculpt, moulded and cast in resin by Laird, with the finishing line work rather aptly handed over to Anser. Mimicking the way in which the iconic face is never drawn the same way twice (check out some examples on Anser’s IG feed here), the edition of 30 figures have each been produced in a one-off, never to be repeated tint, coming with a stackable top and bottom for easy multiple display. Priced at $300 a piece, the Painted Faces will be making their debut at Anser’s “Crowded Kingdom” show, touching down at the #Hashtag Gallery, 801 Dundas St. W. Toronto, on Thursday, February 27th. Head over to the gallery’s site here for more information on the exhibition…


MAN-E-NEWS// ‘The Ghost Pig’ resin figure from Big Trubble…

“You may eat his flesh, but you can’t consume his soul. The pig is released from his corporeal body just before the first bites are taken. He’s now free to explore the spirit world and haunt his tormentors for years to come…”

Since the reveal of the ‘Leader‘ resin figure a couple of months back, we’ve been dying to see how Big Trubble‘s Laird Henderson could possibly top such an amazing piece- well here’s the answer, as the Toronto based artist proudly presents his latest release, The Ghost Pig! A total change in direction from the foreboding Leaders, the hilarious figure has been designed, hand sculpted and cast by Laird, with cell vinyl application by Tara Krebs. Weighing in at an impressive 7″ tall, the beautifully executed piece has been limited to just 30 pieces, with limited supplies available at both Magic Pony and the Big Trubble store for $200 plus shipping…


MAN-E-NEWS// The ‘Leader’ from Big Trubble x Jamiyla Lowe for ‘A Clear Blazing Fire’…

Big Trubble x Jamiyla Lowe - Leader 1

“The mysterious beast known only as the Leader has a small but devout following. They worship him without question and whisper his secret name under their breath as they go about their daily tasks. What inspires this passionate adoration? The few outsiders that have laid eyes upon the beast report a simultaneous sense of horror and reverence that cannot be explained.”

Toronto based artist Laird Henderson aka Big Trubble kindly shares details of his entry for Magic Pony‘s ‘A Clear Blazing Fire’ group show, the absolutely breathtaking ‘Leader’ resin figure… Closely based on an illustration by Jamiyla Lowe, the beautifully sculpted beast stands at an impressive 8″ tall, coming with 6 intensely detailed ‘Follower’ figures, each hand cast and painted by the artist. Limited to just 9 sets, the Leader and his Followers will be available at the show for $500…

A Clear Blazing Fire - Flyer

“Every moment must be spent worshipping the Leader. Each loyal follower should be in possession of an idol bearing the great Leader’s image for those times when the glorious one is away. Ensure your entry into The Pit of Eternity with this beautifully crafted statue.”

Joining the main package, Laird has also created a standalone Leader entitled the ‘Idol’. Painted in a rather more ominous brown with bright red eyes, the ‘single’ piece has been limited to just 5 this time around, coming with a price tag of $300 each. Once again, expect to see these the show’s opening this Friday, March 15th…
