January 26 was the release date of The Vivisect Playset mini-toy figure series produced by STRANGEco’s. The Vivisect Playset features mini-figures by artists Anthony Ausgang, Luke Chueh, Peter Gronquist, Thomas Han, Joe Ledbetter, Greg Simkins and Amanda Visell. Quite a lineup! The concept is based on an annual group art show, curated by Luke Cheuh and hosted by Gallery 1988 in San Francisco, which focuses on the dissection and reconstruction of animals to demonstrate human emotion.
