• PORTFOLIO

    Breaking the toyism code is a fun game. However for toyism lovers, it is certainly not crucial to do so. One does not need to know the recipe to enjoy drinking a refreshing beverage. The taste is all that matters.

  • PORTFOLIO

    The toyism movement is ambiguous. While other movements emphasize the importance of rejecting, toyism focuses on embracing instead. Some art movements exhibit at only museums and galleries; others say that all worthy art must be in the streets. Toyism accepts both.
