tobyhk enjoyed being one of the glorious warriors in this character battlefield!

The installation “Characters at War” (2004) enabled visitors to meet the elite of international character design literally eye-to-eye. From Super Mario to Emily the Strange, hundreds of all time favourites and shiny newcomers from the flat-faced world of character design, comics, graffiti and merchandising pushed through to the third dimension!

The loveliest, cutest, and strangest characters stood tall as life-size cardboard in a gigantic battlefield installation. Audience were wowed by this stunning lineup.

“Characters at War” has toured excessively around the globe, and has been installed in the Zentralbüro, Berlin and the Forum-NRW, Düsseldorf (GER), at the Space4 Gallery in Peterborough (UK), at the Secca in Winston-Salem (USA) and the California State Univeristy Long Beach Art Museum in Los Angeles (USA).
