Bax Bears World Tour Toronto

Bax Bears Invade Toronto


While it might not be worth calling in the army for, the Bax Bears World Tour has taken on Toronto in force at the Keep Six Contemporary gallery.

The tour marks the launch of the new DIY (Design-it-Yourself) Munny-like toys, the Bax Bears in Toronto. As part of the event, gallery owner and curator Rafi Ghanaghounian gathered a collection of artists and designers from around the city to contribute their own creations.

Friday's opening party drew a capacity crowd eager to see some of our local talent, as well as international creativity from the US all the way to Japan. The designs were equally as diverse, showcasing an array of amazing talents from across the world.

Here's some video of the tour's launch day on Friday, and a preview of some of the work you can expect to see:

You can check out all the Bax Bears and the Toronto leg of the world tour at Keep Six Contemporary until this Sunday, April 6th. The gallery will also be hosting a talking series on Sunday with speakers from the city's illustration community as well as Steve Cober and Kristin Weckworth, the owners of Magic Pony. The day's events will then conclude with a screening of "Toys are Us", a documentary about DIY culture, creative expression and of course, toys.
