Fresh off a sold-out partnership with ESOW, AllRightsReserved follows up with a squid game-inspired figurine from Joohee Park, aka Stickymonger.
Born in South Korea and now based in Brooklyn, Stickymonger has built a unique aesthetic first characterized by using vinyl stickers to create massive murals that blur the lines between fantasy and reality. This unique choice of materials is inspired by her childhood growing up in a house next to a gas station in Korea. Since then, the artist has expanded her practice to include acrylic and spray paint through compositions that offer the viewer a surreal shadow world of contradictions.
Stickymonger keeps it close to home and takes advantage of Netflix’s blockbuster Korean series squid game by a security character who intervenes with her manga-inspired pastiche. The mixed media figure is an edition of 140, measuring at 9.8″ tall and is signed and numbered by the artist.
