Last but not least, we head over to Barcelona, Spain! where we close off the Bodega artist series with Pez! Pez’s trademark “Happy Style” was established in 1999 and has been making it’s way around the map ever since. The Pez (which means fish in spanish) has grown, multiplied, morphed and duplicated throughout the years, but the message of happiness remains the same.

PEZ’s vibrant use of color makes his work pop right of the city landscape and flows fluidly throughout the city’s facade.

When not on land, PEZ finds refuge in his natural environment…

PEZ has collaborated with some well known brands, such as Montana, Kidrobot and Marc Ecko to name a few, so it’s an honor to have him as part of the Bodega artist series line up.

The PEZ bodega stands at 5.5″ with 5 points of articulation, this bad boy comes equipped with brass knuckles and an orange box cutter!

As we close of the series, I’d like to thank all the vendors and fans that supported the rerelease of my Bodega figure and all the artist that made the series possible! The Pez bodega is available through DKE TOYS. For more Pez action, follow him on instagram @pezbarcelona

Flying in from Germany, Art pilot Flying Fortress comes in for a landing with the Bodega artist series, featuring his classic Teddy Troops mascot. I’m a huge fan of bold and clean design, so I was super excited to get one of my favorite aerosol navigators on board.

The Teddy Troops mascot has the capability to blend in seamlessly into it’s environment…

… and at the same time, pop off of the inner city landscape.

To make it a little more fun for all you collectors, I decided to grab 10 out of the hundred, I customized the caps white & blue, then shuffled them back into the mix.  These chase Bodega figures are signed and numbered by me as well.

Here’s Flying Fortress and Nychos putting in some heavy work!!! remember to swing by Dekorner to pick up your Flying Fortress Bodega!

The Bodega artist series continues with art power house and fellow B&A rep artist Tristan Eaton! Tristan is one of those inspirational artist who is always on the move… from murals, toy design, corporate branding to fine art in a high end galleries, he’s got it covered. Tristan Eaton’s orange Bodega features his classic Amazon Queen, which should be familiar to many of his fans. Limited to 100 pieces, the Bodega was released at BAIT’s flagship store in Diamond Bar, CA.
