First off, my little Batman and Robin, aren’t they cute? Artworks by Mari Kasurinen, who chose customized My Little Pony toys sculptures to recreate pop icons. Not your usual subject and that what makes it unique. From Batman and Robin, to Michael Jackson, Han Solo to Iron man. Her collection is filled with playfulness but what does it really convey? Her message actually is addressing materialism. And what better way to demonstrate this but thru one of the very first material things we crave as kids? That’s right, toys.
“Play is children’s way to explore and understand the world around us. When parents get to decide and design their children’s toys, which are their mediums in play, the influence is inevitable.” ~ Kasurinen
