Hi.

Welcome to the latest art to emerge from the contemporary visionaries as seen through the eyes of Platinum Cheese. 

Ccino the Sad Coffee Cup

For all you vinyl toy collecting coffee addicts out there, this one's for you!  Allow me to introduce you to Ccino the Sad Coffee Cup. Ccino is a unique combo of toy art and social commentary filled to the brim with irony, wit, sarcasm and dismay. Often aided by visual gags and props, Ccino is a sort of everyman who playfully embodies the ancient philosopy that 'to live is to suffer'. And even though you might find among his creations a mug with devilish features, or a mug with a Mayan design and a bomb exploding from its head, CCino is not really about the devil nor a critique on the hype of the 2012 Mayan apocalypse. If anything it's about celebration in the midst of death and decay. Or is it?   Pretty heavy-duty thoughts from a vinyl toy? It's just a sad coffee cup. Take it or leave it.

 

Looking forward to: David Ellis @ New Image Art
