Grapes Bear 5" Mini Qee by Street Grapes

Toy2R - Grapes Bear 5 Inch Mini Qee Vinyl Figure by Street Grapes

Toy2R unveiled its newest Mini Qee this week, and it really got The Blot’s attention. While I’m not usually into Qees, I found myself doing a double take after seeing the Grapes Bear by Street Grapes. I was not only interested in seeing more of the design, but finding out more about the artist involved. It turns out Street Grapes is an up and coming street artist and illustrator who was born and raised in Russia, but is now living in the United States.

Street Grapes combines hand drawn and graphic art together to make sophisticated and distinctive designs, and his art can now be seen in many parts of the US, from NYC to LA, as well as in other parts of the world. According to Toy2R, Street Grapes is influenced by many art forms ranging from classical Russian art and Medieval illustrations, to old-school graffiti. He enjoys the art of many people from all over the world, contemporary and classical.

The Grapes Bear is a funny little character who loves to travel around the world. Maybe you'll see him around next time you're in the streets. The Grapes Bear is scheduled to go on sale in mid-June as one of Toy2R's many summer releases and will retail for $28 each.
