Co-hosted with Mighty Jaxx
Jason Freeny is a New York based sculptor, illustrator and toy designer, mostly known for his iconic and ironic anatomical character dissections. Jason utilizes his industrial design prototyping techniques to create hyper-polished, hand made sculptures that are often confused as actual mass produced toys. Starting almost 20 years ago with his first fictional illustrated diagram, Jason went into full toy production when he teamed up with Singapore based Mighty Jaxx in 2013.
Jason continues to explore new sculptural concepts, openly displaying his process and techniques in extensive work-in-progress posts on social media as well as teaching toy design at School of Visual Arts in New York City. Through his almost 30 year career, Jason has lent his skills to such clients as MTV, Nickelodeon, Penthouse, TimeOutNewYork, WIRED, Heavy Metal, Planet Hollywood and Disney. Jason has had the honor of solo exhibits in Tokyo, Los Angeles, Shanghai and Taipei.
This will be Jason’s third appearance at SGCC where he considers it one of his favorite places to visit.
