Last Sunday, I attended a Vinyl Figure Painting Workshop with artist Yukinori Dehara at the Giant Robot 2 Gallery in Los Angeles. Dehara current has an exhibit entitled “Nendo Pro Wrestling“, featuring his painted clay figures. During the workshop, the attendees got to choose a small blank vinyl figure to paint. I ended up with a figure I believe is called “Menta” in a neon magenta color. Given the theme of the show, I decided to paint him as masked wrestler. This figure is only 1.5 inches tall, so it was definitely tough to get good detail, so after the workshop, I ended up repainting parts of him and here is the result.
You can check out Dehara’s exhibit now through July 24th at the GR2 Gallery.
