Collaboration is embedded in the design of every gear. One lonely gear does nothing, it needs others to do what it is intended to do. Together the gears create a complex system where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It is the same with the cells in our body. Only together can they make us into what we are. From our simplest action to our most exhalted thought. If we investigate our mirror image, in time we will discover that we have more in common than we would expect. It’s our cells that, from the deepest parts of our being, encourage us to work together. It is intrinsic to life.

Toyism paintings are nothing if not bizarre but recognizable imageries drawn from reality, the surreal, and fantasy. The intense play of lines, shapes, dots and colors is intended to help open the viewer’s mind. And to critical thinking about the human condition in the present day world. Toyism is figurative, contemporary and based on a story. These stories can cover all kinds of subjects. From happy to critical or serious subjects. Toyism paintings are very labour intensive. Every painting consist of several layers of paint. Making the colours bright and vibrant and able to withstand the test of time.
Paintings are created by a mixed group of professional artists from around the world. Also with diverse cultural backgrounds and working in various disciplines. Yet all artists have a like-minded view of how to experience this art and inspire each other. No matter their own backgrounds or beliefs, everyone can express themselves in this style without losing their own value or feeling. Therefore every toyist can influence and enrich the style. Hence toyists tell their own story and depict it.
