CLICK HERE FOR AUTHORS: Jeff Staple by Danil Yad (Part I)
No need to queue, no need to camp, but just 24 hours and never again. That's right, we're so stoked to be dropping Jeff Staple by Danil Yad this weekend in a time-limited release. One of the most promising, up-and-coming artists that we started to work with in 2020, Danil Yad's designs have already made waves in the world of art and collectibles. This time, in collaboration with fashion and design extraordinaire Jeff Staple, we're definitely expecting a lot of hype! Let's take a closer look!
The sculpt for Jeff Staple by Danil Yad features the signature serene expression that Danil Yad's characters are known for. Geometric planes and clean contours capture the likeness of Jeff Staple in a timeless, minimal style. From his beanie to his jacket to his sneakers, there is not a tad of unnecessary detail that might break the sleek design. Less is more, and we love how Danil Yad's confidence and mastery of form is displayed through his art.
The overall color scheme of the figure is a cool monochrome. Decked out in understated greys and blacks, the design is simple yet stylish, befitting of a style icon. A small color palette with minimal patterns and distractions best complements the geometric style, truly allowing the art figure's beautiful, refined form to shine. We also love the warm red hue on the soles of the sneakers, which stands out from the cool greys, adding a pop of color to the design.
What's also super cool about Jeff Staple by Danil Yad is - you got it - the pigeon. Being the first animal that we see in the AUTHORS series, the iconic New York pigeon gets the same artistic treatment. Its rotund form is balanced with clean, sharp contours, which makes it adorable but not overly so. The chubby bird fits snuggly in the Jeff Staple figurine's hands, and is removable. It's exciting to see yet another artist take his own spin on the famous Staple Pigeon.
Wanna see Jeff Staple, the man himself, unbox... himself? You're in for a treat. We had sent a sample of this figure to Jeff Staple earlier on, and here's a video of him unboxing it!
