Mike Leavitts art action figures

Mike Leavitt, a Seattle-based artist most recently seen in our city when he had a solo show at Fuse Gallery last spring, just unveiled some new additions to his Art Army action figure series, which, as the name suggests, turns modern and contemporary artists into stylized, articulated collectors’ items. The new set includes Ron English, Damien Hirst and Banksy (above, respectively), as well as R. Crumb and David Byrne. Clearly, a Cindy Sherman action figure should be next in the series—just think of all the accessories! (Asylum)
