Artist: Boon Velvet

Boon Velvet is the artistic alias of John Price Corr III (American, b. March 8th, 1981), or JP Corr III, studied photography at the Fashion Institute of Technology and began a promising career in the field. Part of his spine crushed while doing heavy maintenance work in 2002, Corr developed a nerve disorder called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), leaving him in a near-constant state of pain and unable to continue with his artistic outlet. More than a decade later, his creative juices were reawakened by the idea of designing art toys in partnership with Lulubell Toy Bodega, and his Yokai Americana series was born with the debut of his She Headless Horse concept.
