NEW YORK – The East Coast designer toy, street, and alternative art festival Five Points will take place on June 2-3 at its new location: the Brooklyn Expo Center. The festival will bring together the shining stars of the designer toy, kaiju, sofubi and alternative art worlds with the Lagunitas Brewing Company craft beer, and food.

Featuring a dynamic lineup of counterculture artists and artisans from around the world, the event is a two day celebration of toy designers and customizers with an extensive international neo-kaiju and sofubi section, original street art, independent comic artists, and gourmet food trucks. The 2018 beer garden will be managed by Brooklyn-based Threes Brewing Company and will feature several very special limited-edition brews.

Enthusiasts familiar with art toys will have the chance to meet some of the world’s most iconic artists and brands like Huck Gee (with his brand new company Superplastic, who just launched their kickstarter and is over 700% funded), Instinctoy, Kidrobot, James Groman, Jason Freeny, Ron English, Super7, Tara McPherson, and Mighty Jaxx on the show floor, where they will be featured alongside artists from the U.S., Japan, Germany, Korea, the U.K. and elsewhere–some showcasing in NYC for the first time, and all with unique, original pieces for sale.

Anyone who has attended mainstream art shows or comic-theme conventions will find something completely unique at Five Points — a gathering of visual innovators, rebels, creators, and the misfits that are driving the future of commercial and counterculture art.

VIP ticketholders will have early access privileges each day of the festival, as well as entry to Friday night’s Designer Toy Awards, the world’s premier accolade for designer toy artists, and an all-around excellent party.
