Contemporary Figurative Modifications is an exhibit showing at the Toy Art Gallery that displays the work of six toy artists. The sinister creations of Bob Conge/Plaseebo, Brent Nolasco, Jim Koch, Leecifer, TASKone, and Nerviswr3k will be causing a stir at the gallery from April 2 to April 30.

The figurines on display in Contemporary Figurative Modifications are a mashup of different mediums. The group of designers use vinyl, paint, resin and canvas to rework and produce new toy art.

Most of the toys that can be found in Contemporary Figurative Modifications look like ghoulish monsters, some more friendly-looking than others. If these toys were actually sold to children, I would bet that they would induce more nightmares than memorable playtime memories. Stats for Terrifying Toy Exhibits Trending: Older & Mild
