We know our children have an awful lot of options when looking for toys. And since most of them are very unique and cool, here’s another idea of what to do with them. Collecting and displaying.
That’s what businessman Selim Varol did and still does. His very impressive collection of cool toys is now available at ME COLLECTORS ROOM BERLIN. Varol reportedly owns one of the largest collections of figurines in Europe. Up to or even more than 15,000 pieces. Also displayed at COLLECTORS ROOM are works by artists working with ideas between the Pop Art movement and the currently very famous street art – thanks to the blogsphere…
More after the jump/below. Plus a link to a great photo report focusing on the figurines and action figures…
Remember the 2008 “HOPE” poster for Barack Obama’s US presidential race? It’s there – on paper. As well as many other objects made of vinyl or plastic. A great and almost overwhelming mixture – on the walls, the ground, and sometimes up to the ceiling.
For a great impression here are some very detailed photos by Jana Ebert. Check them out below. And zoom in to discover every corner.
ART & TOYS – COLLECTION SELIM VAROL at ME COLLECTORS ROOM BERLIN is running until September 16, 2012.
For in-depth information on how to visit go to the offical website. A full list of all the involved artists there, too. The exhibition features works by Jeff Koons, Jean Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld and many many more.
