BINIL Custom Toy Exhibit

PHILIPPINES

”Mangled! Manipulated! Modified!” screams the poster of BINIL, a custom toy exhibit currently running at Vinyl on Vinyl-The Collective in Malugay, Makati. The art freak show features vinyl toys cranked by the creatively mad minds of some of the country’s young artists. They are Spencer Ong and Stephen Ong of Rotobox Vinyl Anatomica, designer of Kuso Vinyl’s Celsius Figure, Nico Deacosta and his Mighty Muggs, Trip 63's Carrotbombing (one of Philippines’ main proponents of graffiti), Whoop, Nemo, Wesndestroy, M.G., Litan, Ira Tan, architect Jomike Tejido with his Robotars and graphic artists Jan Calleja and Gilbert Ibanez .





BINIL opened to the delight of vinyl toy enthusiasts and other art aficionados last November 5, 2010.

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan http://pilipinastreetplan.blogspot.com/2009/03/tie-one-19791998-rip.html Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone  http://saberone.com/blog/2009/
