Valery’s Broken Toyland

The work of artist Valery is very dark, yet imbued with a sense of playfulness: ‘Most of the Broken Toyland characters came to life in the late 90s and early 00s. The visuals have to do with my love of the past, vintage toys, cartoons, and such. Then came the rag dolls and patchwork bunnies. Broken Toyland’s base is in behavior, emotion, situation and imperfection. While Bunny very often has a smoke or a drink (or both) in hand, this is not what’s being promoted. There’s much more going on than what might be first assumed at first glance. The anesthetics symbolize something else. I have a lot of empathy for the characters and feel drawn to keep recreating them again and again. I suppose I identify with them all too well, as would many’.
