Argentinian artist José Luis Torres has dotted buildings all over Ottawa, Canada with his unique art installations! Titled “Tipping Point”, the art pieces consist of a variety of brightly-colored found objects, ranging from plastic children’s toys, bins, chairs, and even boats! The pieces are designed to seem large and imposing, as these are part of Torres’ movement in bringing to light the clutter and hoarding nature of daily life, while at the same time displaying a bright and colorful summertime-themed collage.

The vinyl Toy art medium has been growing and evolving ever since its conception in the late 1990s, and now the Design Exchange, Canada’s national design museum, is hosting an exhibit to pay tribute to this modern form of art expression. Titled “This Is Not a Toy”, the exhibit is located at the Design Exchange building at 234 Bay Street in Toronto, and explores the vinyl figure as an object of art and design, as well as challenging the difference between “toys” and artwork.
