Mr Clement, the mastermind behind such minimalistically wonderful designs as Petit Lapin and the Ji Ja Bird, began a World Tour of his creations at the turn of the millennium in his birthplace of Hong Kong. Over the last dozen years this ever-evolving exhibition has traveled to London, Paris, Sofia, Varna and an upcoming opening in Los Angeles. For this â his first solo show in the States â Mr Clement will be represented by an array of sculptures, figures, paintings and drawings, including a variety of new releases specifically for this momentous occasion:
- The "Rainbow Petit Lapin," an artist edition of the iconic form that has been hand-painted in a run of only 14 pieces;
- the "LA LA Ji Ja," a metallic gold edition of the figure limited to 50 copies; and
- the "Petit Lapin Museum 2012: Please Forget Meâ¦ in Black," an exclusive colorway of the 10-inch skull-headed figure.
The "Lapin World Tour - Los Angeles" will open on August 25th with an opening party from 7-10PM that even the enigmatic Mr Clement will be in attendance for. The show will remain displayed until September 12th, 2012, available for viewing at the Toy Art Gallery (TAG), 7571 Melrose Ave., Hollywood, CA 90046.
