SupertoysSupertoys was invited by MOAM Amsterdam and Walt Disney to make a work to celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday. 

Our work celebrates Mickey’s character traits. Through a configuration of simple colourful three-dimensional shapes mimicking Mickey’s most iconic posture, we aim to materialise his rebellious curiosity, his optimistic playfulness and his loving kindness. With Abet Laminati’s colourful laminate and the use of an inlay technique of a black and white laminate wave pattern, our Mickey resonates traditional handcraft combined with digital precision and our love for Memphis-design.

The Mickey Mouse exhibition opened at Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam on November 1st 2018 with contributions of 18 artists. Later the artworks were exhibited at a public pop-up exhibition at Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.
