BLVD Gallery is proud to present the latest installment in Michael Leavitts Art Army® series, “The Guerilla Crew”. The Art Army® action figures are homages to the killer art and artists that rock our world. Instead of making boring normal art, Leavitt is paying tribute to great people and work. This is no customization hobby, and it also ain’t some profound artistic statement. The one-off figures are each original, fully posable mini sculptures engineered for major articulation. They look like real toys, but no Art Army® figure is machine manufactured. These action figures don’t fit in any molds. Each is sculpted from scratch as one artists’ offering to an icon. The “Guerilla Crew” is Mikes tribute to the vibrant street/ urban art community featuring legends of graffiti, skateboarding, Hip Hop, and street fashion. For this show Mike has sculpted figurines of Banksy, Twist, Seen, Tupac, Nigo, Basquiat, Lady Pink, ODB, Fafi, and more.
