LA-based artist Mike Kelley, one of the most influential contemporary artists today has collaborated with Perks and Mini and Medicom Toys from Japan to create this soft, cuddly and strangely insecure talking creature.
Throughout his career, Kelleyâ€™s work has involved confrontational crochet and stuffed animal arrangements, as you have probably seen on the cover of Sonic Youthâ€™s 91 release Dirty. Would Little Friend be an indication of what those toys would say if they had a voice?
Full of creepy lines such as â€œI watch youâ€, and â€œhurt meâ€¦I donâ€™t mind!â€, Little Friend isnâ€™t exactly your average, comforting bedside friend. For fans, there is only a limited edition of 800 made, so to avoid disappointment, get in quick.
