ToGo wants everyone to use a coffee cup. The more, the merrier. NoGo does not agree, he loves sustainability and fights against the abundance of coffee cups and for the interests of the coffee farmers. For many people, coffee is an essential part to their lives. Nowadays, we walk the streets with our cups en masse. The result is a mountain of garbage in every city with a Coffee ToGo. The coffee “Kopi Luwak” first drunk by poor people, is now the most expensive coffee in the world.

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.
