Mr. Toll Goes To The Malaysian Jungle

Posted on January 3, 2015

We have become accustomed to being surprised by the occasional tropical bird perched above head in the urban jungle that is NYC.  But Mr. Toll has never looked so site-appropriate until now.

While taking part in the “Urban Xchange: Crossing Over” mural arts festival in Penang, Malaysia recently, Mr. Toll headed straight to the jungle with photographer Henrik Haven in tow. There he placed his now familiar clay sculptures of birds into verdant lush surroundings and you have to admit they look perfectly happy there.

Somehow climbing up and over large moss covered tree roots is a very appealing thought on this grey January day, especially when you are confronted with the bright and colorful plumage of a sculpture by the Brooklyn-based street artist. Not sure about the availability of a deli here, or a corner for that matter.
