LUKE ROOK IS GRODY TO THE MAX

FEB 23 – MAR 13, 2013

OPENING RECEPTION: SAT, FEB 23, 6:30-10PM

Luke Rook is a toy maker who moved to Japan to pursue his dreams of being part of the toy world. He researched and soon hit the ground running. He soon gained international recognition for his Grody Shogun figures as well as his unrelenting approach to toy making. There’s none other like him. His humbleness in his work is almost unique and his creativity and ability to think of how toys can be created and put together are that of a fine artist. He won’t hesitate to use parts and pieces that are normally discarded to use. He’ll blend parts of one figure and put them on another to create an entirely different object. We’re proud to bring his works to you in a gallery setting.
