Bad Apple by Goin


Mighty Jaxx have collaborated with Goin on 'Bad Apple', the first collectable resin figure by the French graffiti artists. Based on his famous street art piece of the same name, seen across Europe's main cities, 'Bad Apple' stands 20cm tall and finished in this luscious high gloss pink. This colourway is limited to 300 pieces worldwide, but two further colourways are planned, simply dubbed '37 and '71. The '37 hints at the original release date of Disney's 'Snow White', so we're expecting to see a classic colour scheme. The '71 colourway might be themed around the 'Disney World' opening in 1971, but we're not sure what to expect.

The finished figure is yet to be unveiled the images seen here are 3D renderings, but we've read that the embossed detailing on the bandana (seen in the white render below) will also feature on the finished pink model.

"Dripping with the original spirit of punk and a relentless flood of socially, politically and consciously engaged ideas, French artist Goin is priming the charges and leaving creativity’s spark to light the fuse of a new humanist activism. Emancipation, liberation, rebellion and the punishing vagaries of power’s endless cycles of corruption run deep into his work as powerful aesthetics take shape under the conceptual hammer. Laced with a superbly black sense of humour and forcefulness a visceral energy that bursts off his pieces Goin’s work wreaks chaos onto order and snatches moments of lucid disorder out of the volatile forge of history’s spiral."

Pre-order now from Mighty Jaxx, due early 2013.
