April Flores’ Love Toy is Canvas for Eight World-Renown Artists in Single Night Gallery Show

Fatty D Original MoldTopco Sales presents a unique, one-night-only exhibit featuring limited edition artist renditions of leading Big Beautiful Women (BBW) star April Flores’ Voluptuous CyberSkin Love Toy. Eight, world-renown, Los Angeles-based artists are designing one-of-a-kind creations, using plaster molds of the April Flores toy as their canvas. Participating artists include Axis, Carlos Batts, COOP, Jim Mahfood, Kime Buzzelli, Kozy & Dan, Misha, and Small Paul. The exhibit will take place on May 13th at La Luz de Jesus Gallery, and will be curated by Carlos Batts.

"Creative interpretations of the female anatomy are fundamental to art," explains Carlos Batts, Curator. "Specifically, this project was inspired by the irony of Jeff Koons’ work and the playfulness of the Dunny movement, as well as by April herself. In this exhibit, April provides the blank canvas on which each artist has the opportunity to express his or her vision."

Fatty DApril Flores has starred in numerous films and has been featured in countless magazines. Voted one of Fleshbot’s Crush Objects, she has a massive and rabid following within the BBW fan community. She is the first BBW star to be molded by Topco Sales.

"When Topco Sales molded April to make her toy, we knew we were breaking new ground. Partnering with her and C. Batts FLY to present this exhibit seems like a natural next step," says Desiree Duffie, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Topco Sales. "This show provides an inspired arena in which to play with such provocative issues as beauty, sexuality, intimacy, pleasure toys and more. I can’t wait to see each artist’s work."

April Flores’ popularity, visibility, and name recognition ensure hearty demand for a piece of her. The eight April Flores pieces will be unveiled for the first time, and made available for sale, on the evening of the event. Each artist will invoke his or her signature style in designing a one-of-a-kind creation.

Axis is a provocative graphic illustrator and graffiti artist known for his bold images.

Carlos Batts is an accomplished film director, producer, and artist, who claims April Flores as his muse.

Known for smoking devils and outrageous monsters adorning everything from t-shirts to skate boards and album covers, COOP is an integral part of subversive LA art scene.

Kim Buzzelli combines fashion, music and witchcraft to design evocative paintings, illustrations and installations.
