Giant Robot is proud to host Hot Pink Fuzz, a group art show featuring new work by Miss Muju, Monyomonyo, and Snaggs.

Miss Muju is one half of artist team Muju, based in St Ives, Cornwall, UK, who has been making and exhibiting handmade Muju Toys since 2004 alongside her partner Mr. Muju. Mandalas are a recurring theme in her work, as is the symmetry of natural forms. “I love to work in vibrant colors and create fades of color through intricate felt patterns,” she explains.” For the show, Miss Muju is making one giant mandala figure and a collection of much smaller characters that are connected to the felt sculpture in color and theme.

Monyomonyo is a sewing artist based in Tokyo, Japan. She has liked to sew bags since childhood, started creating plush toys in 2005, and had her first exhibition in 2007, in Ebisu, Tokyo. In addition to making gallery work, she has made costumes for dancers, collaborated with children, and made movies. With inspiration from “traveling” and “pictures and stories of festivals, ceremonies, etc.,” she is making plush toys, masks, and other surprises. This will be her first American exhibition.

Seattle-based Snaggs was inspired by stuffed Nauga Monsters from the ’60s to become a felt artist. Her rainbow-colored body of work, which includes “paintings,” dolls, and pillows, has a retro modern style that combines the handmade quality of craft with the sensibility of clean design. For Hot Pink Fuzz, she is creating felt cereal boxes. She says, “The packaging of anything from my youth, from cereal boxes and candy to Halloween costumes, was never serious. Half the time they didn’t make any sense, yet they were still effective”

Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based magazine about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with shops and galleries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City, as well as an online equivalent.

An opening reception will take place on 6:30 – 10:00 on Saturday, August 14. For more information about the artists, GRSF, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
