In My Happy Place — Rainbow Edition Signing and Release

Join us this Sunday, January 22nd from Noon to 2pm for a special exclusive figure release and signing with none other than the wonderful JC Rivera!

Known throughout Chicago for his iconic Bear Champ murals and artwork, JC has partnered with Strangecat Toys to produce this uplifting figure (that is also actually a lamp!) based on his 2017 painting "In My Happy Place."

This Rotofugi exclusive version adds a gradient rainbow effect and graffiti tag (on the back) to the original design and was produced in a limited edition of just 100 pieces.

In My Happy Place — Rainbow Edition is 5 inches tall, 7 inches wide, has an LED light inside that is powered via USB, and is priced at $150.

Sales begin this Sunday at Noon at the store, 2780 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago and remaining inventory will be available online at rotofugi.com beginning at 2pm Central Time.

March Exhibit: Michael Fleming aka Tweedlebop

Curious Critters
New Works by Michael Fleming (aka Tweedlebop)
March 20-April 11, 2021

Heading into Spring we thought it was time for something colorful and fun, and it was an easy choice to ask Michael Fleming, aka Tweedlebop, to put on a show. With a 15+ year long career in illustration, Michael has a super fun, super colorful style that connects with both kids and adults alike and we're excited to have a new solo exhibit featuring new works of his. We don't know what all the Curious Critters will look like just yet, but we can't wait to find out!

The exhibit will be open for viewing and sales beginning Saturday, March 20, 10am-6pm, but we are being cautious and will not be holding an opening reception.

Sign up for our gallery previews email list at previews.rotofugi.com to receive an email when works are available to purchase online — we try to have a preview out a day or two before an exhibit opens, though sometimes it doesn’t go out until sometime after the opening.

The exhibit continues through April 11th and the gallery is open for viewing at Rotofugi, 2780 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, 10am-6pm daily, or view online at gallery.rotofugi.com.

We're super excited to be getting a little down and dirty with our February exhibit by Nashville-based artist Charles V. Bennett, aka The Tennessee Wolfman!

In short, this is good stuff.

Saturday, June 1, 7-10pm

We get excited about all of our exhibits because, well, we only book things we love, but we're especially looking forward to our June exhibit. Chicago born and raised, Ennis Martin is a bit of a renaissance man — counting artist, teacher and b-boy among his titles. What we're most interested in, of course, is his amazing art!

Join us the evening of Saturday, June 1, 7-10pm for the opening reception of "Oddities of the Multiverse," where Ennis will be unveiling 20+ new works. We'll also have music by DJ Sean Doe, plus complimentary snacks and soft drinks...and if you'd like to BYOB, we're just across the street from the wonderful Beermiscous!

Ennis will be in attendance at the opening reception so please do stop by and say hello.

Exhibit continues through June 30, 2019.

May Exhibit: Blake Jones

Naivety Scene
New Works by Blake Jones
May 4-26, 2019

BYOB Opening Reception
Saturday, May 4, 7-10pm

We're lucky to have collaborated with Chicago-based (via Houston, TX) artist Blake Jones on several projects over the last couple years. Blake's illustrative style draws on a huge range of influences from comics to abstract art, but is always consistently colorful, approachable and, well, cute.

A prolific sketchbook user, Blake is rarely seen without a book full of doodles and character studies....for this exhibit we've asked Blake to open up his sketchbooks and share the love in an explosion of wonderful, affordable art!

Join us the evening of Saturday, May 4, 7-10pm for the opening reception. We'll have music by DJ Sean Doe, plus complimentary snacks and soft drinks...and if you'd like to BYOB, we're just across the street from the wonderful Beermiscous!

Blake will be in attendance at the opening reception so please do stop by and say hello.

Exhibit continues through May 26, 2019.
