Igor Ventura has enjoyed drawing and painting from a young age, but it was a Christmas gift from his wife in 2007 that introduced him to designer toys. Always interested in finding new avenues to flex his creative, artistic muscles, Ventura quickly adopted Kidrobot’s Dunny form as a canvas, hand-painting unique and extremely limited versions of his concepts. In 2010, Ventura gained international attention by being awarded 3rd place for the Grand Prize in that year’s Munny Munth contest as well as being a finalist in the CE Planet Toy Global Contest I. As his reputation continued to grow, Ventura was invited to create factory-made designs for companies like Aarting, Kidrobot, Dyzplastic and Artoyz, though he never stopped pursuing his passion of hand-crafting comically smart designer toy customs.
