NEW VAN GOGH ART TOY TO LAUNCH THIS FALL
Today is Art Day partners with designer Gabriel Soares to bring Van Gogh’s Dream to the market
April 13, 2023 - QUEBEC CITY, CANADA – Designer toy enthusiasts have a new collectible to look forward to this year: award-winning manufacturer Today is Art Day has partnered with Brazilian designer Gabriel Soares to create a limited-edition art toy depicting Vincent van Gogh in his bedroom in Arles.
Inspired by the Dutch Post-Impressionist artist and his famous Bedroom in Arles series of paintings, the vinyl collectible features the artist gazing out his window, sitting on his bed after a long day of work with his shoes by his bedside.
Titled Van Gogh’s Dream, the designer toy highlights Van Gogh’s desperate will to become an established artist, a status he will only reach years after his death in 1890.
“This design is my tribute to Van Gogh” says designer Gabriel Soares. “I have created this toy to encapsulate all of Van Gogh’s emotion and tireless efforts to become an accomplished artist,” he continues. “I’m excited to partner with Today is Art Day considering their extensive experience in developing products for art lovers and museums.”
“When I saw Gabriel’s design, I could not believe my eyes… You can feel Van Gogh’s emotion!” says David Beaulieu, Today is Art Day founder and CEO. “I immediately reached out to Gabriel so we could bring his magnificent design into a collectible piece for fans around the world”.
“I feel a bit nostalgic with this project,” Beaulieu continues. “The first product we launched in 2017 was a Van Gogh figurine. This new art toy brings back all the excitement and thrill we had when we first started!”
