POPEK Ordinary can be extraordinary just like a balloon dog can poop.

An English breed, seen in pink for the first time. A break from the dullness of day-to-day life. Look! It's pooping publicly! The good thing is, it comes with its own doggy bag.

English artist Whatshisname creates extraordinarily interesting works from ordinary things. In this collaboration between Whatshisname and Jason Freeny in 2018, a balloon dog, which should have burst at the first poke of a needle, gains a skeleton and becomes more like a real dog. That being said, poop, after dissection, is still poop. Let's just say we leave the doggy bag for now and clear it up later.

JASON FREENY

New York Artist Maker of Groovy Things

Jason Freeny is a New York based sculptor and toy designer. Voted “2014 Fan Favorite” by Clutter Magazine readers, Freeny blurs the lines between toy design, art, science and teaching. Known for his iconic anatomical character deconstructions, Jason utilizes his industrial design prototyping techniques to create hyper-polished, hand made sculptures that are often confused as actual mass produced toys. Jason Freeny has received a number of Designer Toy Awards throughout his career, including Breakthrough Artist (2011), Fan Favorite (2013), Custom of the Year (2014), Best Collaboration with artist Luke Chueh (2014), Artist of the Year - Fan Choice (2014), and Best Vinyl & Plastic (2016). In 2015, Jason teamed up with Singapore-based toy company “Mighty Jaxx” to produce limited edition sculpture reproductions and manufactured toys based on his creations.
