An enchanting collection of whimsical creations sculpted in paper mache and handpainted by a true dreamer!

As the artist of Sweet Bestiary notes: “Each of those little beings is a bit of a beast. Be they quasi-animal or completely human. Something about them disturbs me -and touches me, at the same time. Bestiary is the title of my favourite story by Julio Cortázar, my favourite writer”.

Longoland is the place where strange creatures inhabit.

As artist Joshua Ben Longo states: “I give life to inanimate objects. I strive to get strong reactions through gesture and character. It is a process of two and three dimensionally sketching and a slow and intuitive exploration of material and form. More recently I have been exploring abstract narratives, rituals and their social context, and my early childhood perception of superheroes.”

How colorful and cool and huggable I’m sure! Jennifer Strunge is the crafter of Cotton Monsters and here is some info she gives about her soft critters:

“Each Cotton Monster is a little (or big) work of art made from recycled clothing and linens without a pattern, so no two will ever be exactly alike.  In fact I make an attempt to make each cotton monster as different as possible, carefully picking the materials that go into making each one and intuitively sewing all their parts.  Though much care is taken in making each unique creature sturdy, Cotton Monsters should be considered soft sculptures intended for adults, not toys! I am just an artist making art that I love to make; I could not possibly keep up with the testing and standards of toy companies.”

Marina Bychkova is a young super talented doll maker. Her porcelain doll figures are so delicate and expressive, a true tribute to feminine beauty. The brand name “Enchanted Doll” origins from a fictional story of Paul Gallico, where a woman who created dolls put so much love in them and consequently enchanted people at first sight with their life-like beauty.

As the artist states: “My need to work with dolls became evident as a calling when I was six years old. As a child I became painfully aware and appalled at the mediocrity and the uninspired dullness of mass-produced dolls. This profound frustration coupled with my natural sensibilities inspired me to create my own dolls, suited to my own ideas of feminine beauty. A particular point of interest for me was not only the life-like articulation of the body, but also the beautiful balance between a delicate form and an extraordinary function of a doll.”
