Sweet Tooth: Super Sweet Group Show Report

Last Saturday, Munky King was the place to be. Their opening reception for Crowded Teeth’s ‘Super Sweet Group Show’ was poppin’.

Sweet Streets, in collaboration with Crowded Teeth curated an amazing group show with artists such as: Luke Chueh, Eimi, Miso, Martin Hsu, NICO, Mizna Wada, Angry Woebots, among many talented artists.

All of the art was inspired by the works of Crowded Teeth. Of course, we had a little hand in pushing the magic into the world wide web.

The show was a collection of coloful, magical, and cute that only Crowded Teeth could inspire.

We don’t know what was the best part, the art, the magical Crowded Teeth Cupcakes, or the awesome food from Lomo Arigato!

Black in White and Red All Over

Earlier this month, we helped Munky King release the newest creation by renown artist, Luke Chueh.  “Black in White and Red All Over” was not only hugely successful for Munky King and Luke Chueh, but we were amazed at the level of dedication of Luke’s fans!!

The staff at Munky King got up bright and early on October 2, 2010 to decorate their store and gallery space with art and knives. Not to be out done, we showed up to help break a sweat. From blood stains, to knives, to bunnies bleeding all over, there was lots of decorating to be done.

However, no matter how early any of us showed up, Luke’s fans had all of us beat. The early bird line ran down the entire block. The first two fans in line even confessed to us that they had driven from Arizona and had been waiting since 7PM the night before!!! We admire that kind of love of art, especially because they waited not just through the night, but through a swelteringly hot Saturday.

Again another big THANK YOU to everyone who made it out to the Three Apples opening party last night!

The event was so named “Three Apples” as a tribute to Hello Kitty’s weight, as listed on her profile, and the event was a complete success. It was literally packed with attendees and a massive line around the block of Washington Blvd and Robertson Blvd where Royal/T Maid Café sits in Culver City.

The exhibition itself will run at Royal-T from 10/23/09 to 11/15/09 with many event parties during it’s duration. Our Hello Kitty’s Bats & Cats Masquerade (listed as Goth Party on Sanrio.Com) will be held on Friday, November 13, 2009 from 8PM – 12Midnight. More information on this party can be found here.

Also featured at this exhibition are limited edition items ranging from collectibles, purses, accessories, house/kitchen ware. Bubble Punch staffer Chubby Bunny also has limited edition patent red Hello Kitty bows that were made specifically for this event!

Our full listing of photos can be found on our Flickr, but here are a few of our faves below the cut!
