FREE Suckadelic Toy Universe Show

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


Right now, I’m sure you’re looking at any GI Joe, Storm Trooper or Transformer action figures you have and thinking “You’d look so much better on a tiny plastic turn table.” SUCKLORD, a local artist, had thought that too, and actually brought it to fruition for a show at Boo-Hooray gallery.

The Suckadelic Art Toy Universe is anything but sucky. It’s an awesome collection of cars spliced with spaceships, neon painted aliens and storm troopers at turntables. Most of the pieces are Star Wars inspired, but it’s pretty bad ass even if you’re not into Star Wars. It’s like walking down the toy aisle of some weird alternate universe where things only come in neon.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
