MINDstyle's Conehead is a standout art toy by LA artist Germs. Germs's self-labeled "Lowbrown" art combines Chicano culture and imagery with a Low Brow aesthetic. Conehead mixes cultural references with a luchador mask decorated in a stars and stripes motif. Beyond the striking art, Conehead innovates in the area of painting technique.
MINDstyle took the unusual and innovative step of hand-painting nearly the entire figure so as to best translate the nuances of Germs's work to vinyl. The results are stunning -- Conehead simply does not look like a vinyl figure because of its subtle gradients and textures.
