CoART Publications - Art books about art toys. Available now at
CoART Magazine is a dedicated digital digest concerning designer toys, which for all intents and purposes is a sculptural form of pop surrealism, an art movement that combines the dream-like imagery of surrealism with pop art‘s elevation of the mundane. Resulting in works that are equally immersed in the popular culture and infused with the artist’s own fantastical aesthetic, pop surrealist and designer toy works tend to be permeated with social commentary, parodic humor, or even simply a kitschy appeal.
