It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from our buddy Hoakser, so it came with great pleasure today to find his latest toy project nestled in our inbox… the rather sweet looking Masked-Man one-off sculpt! Based on the graffiti cum toy artist’s signature character of the same name, the impressive piece has slowly taken form over the past few months, resulting in the fully standing, 22cm tall behemoth you see above. Sculpted on top of an un-named DIY art toy using air dry clay, the Masked Man has been given Hoakser’s familiar mix of dark acrylic washes and gruesome crimson splatters. Already making it’s way to a very lucky collector over in Canada, we suggest heading over to the Hoakser site here if you’re interested in commissioning a similar piece… Interested in checking out how the figure was put together? Then you’ll be glad to know that Hoakser has just posted the progress shots via his YouTube channel right here.
UK based graffiti-cum-toy artist Hoakser proudly presents the first painted custom of his debut resin figure, Maskedman… Designed and sculpted by the man himself, the incredible spray can/respirator mash-up stands at an impressive 9.5cm tall, with this unique one-off coming painted in Hoakser’s instantly recognisable ‘Rusty’ style. Priced at a wallet friendly £28.99, the piece can be found on the Hoakser store right here… It’s also worth mentioning that Hoakser still has 1 of only 9 blank DIY versions left in the store too. Anyone interested better act quick, the little guy is retailing for just £12- absolute bargain!
After a brief hiatus from the customising scene, UK based graffiti artist Hoakser is proud to present his latest piece, Thomas the Unbuffed Tank Engine! A one-off custom piece created from an abandoned Thomas model, the figure has been given Hoakser’s usual high quality mix of sculpting, melting, distressing and hand painting to create the meticulously weathered and beat-up train you see above. As with Adam Pratt’s past “Thomas the Rage Engine” custom, the shock factor of seeing the much loved children’s character out of context still remains, the sculpted black eyes a particularly clever touch… Measuring 16cm in length, 15cm tall, and is 9.5cm wide, Thomas the Unbuffed Tank Engine has just been added to the Hoakser Etsy store, priced at just £69.99 plus postage… Stay tuned for more Hoakser customs later in the week!
