DKE Toys and AdFunture present the Custom Yoka Show

Hey all,

The Yoka Tour continues...

Following up the premiere of the Custom Yoka Show in November at DesignerCon, the show is making it’s SECOND stop at Black Maria Gallery in Los Angeles.

AdFunture provided their 3” blank Yoka panda bear vinyl figures and DKE Toys co-founders Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks found over 200 artists to participate in the Custom Yoka Show. Featuring work from 20 countries the show turns the quirky little panda into everything from a dirty thug to a sweet snail in this tremendous exhibition. Pieces range from $25 to $800 and will be available for purchase through Black Maria Gallery.

The Custom Yoka Show is meant to coincide with the release of Yoka Series One, a blind boxed collectible figurine that is now available.
