Some Assembly Required | Exhibit

While it’s true we don’t normally cover anything other than games and anime here at oprainfall, there is a vast array of nerd culture that often intersects in unusual ways. One such way is in a new art exhibit at iam8bit in Los Angeles called *Some Assembly Required. This exhibit will feature the artwork of Dano Brown, specifically handcrafted figurines from a wide array of media, including television, film, pop culture and, of course, video games. The gamut ranges from Dumb and Dumber to Teen Wolf to Captain N. Best of all is that the *Some Assembly Required exhibit is free to the general public. It runs from today until August 19th, so if you’re fortunate enough to live in or regularly travel to LA, I would encourage you to check it out. To see more details, read the full press release below.

These handcrafted action figures created by Dano Brown reference characters in film, television and video games that never received the plastic toy treatment. Among the collection includes Bob Ross from The Joy of Painting, Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber, Captain N from Captain N: The Game Master, and many more. Brown ingeniously hobbles together rogue parts and pieces to make his creations from soup to nuts.
