History

20 year history of the Toddlerpillars

This project evolved from Jon Beinart’s infamous insectoid doll sculptures, the Toddlerpillars, which were originally birthed in 2002. These sculptures were published widely in art books and popular magazines and they frequently went viral, reaching all corners of the internet. They were also exhibited in a number of galleries and museums.

In 2011 Jon moved on from this series of sculptures to focus on his oil paintings. In 2016 he opened Beinart Gallery in Melbourne Australia.

This project marks Jon’s return to one of his earliest artistic creations, the Toddlerpillars, in a partnership with the incredible illustrator, Tim Molloy.

Creators

Jon Beinart

Jon Beinart is known for his strange intricate drawings and paintings as well as his Toddlerpillar doll sculptures (2003 – 2011). Jon’s role at Beinart Gallery is the culmination of a lifetime spent supporting artists and creating his own art. Starting out as an artist with a simple website showcasing his art, Jon grew that website into an artistic community, gaining a respectable global following. He built on this by publishing art books and curating group exhibitions in the United States before reassessing his pursuits and founding the Beinart Gallery in Melbourne, Australia.

The Toddlerpillar project marks Jon’s return to one of his earliest artistic creations with the mass-birthing of their digital descendants on the Ethereum blockchain, a graphic novel and blank vinyl Toddlerpillar toys & exhibitions.

Tim Molloy

Tim Molloy makes ridiculous apocalyptic psychedelic art mostly in the form of surrealist comic books, paintings and sculpture.

“My work is an ever expanding and interconnected web of dreamlike and nightmarish storylines soaked heavily in delusion, confusion and a general sense of unease. I draw heavily on surrealist techniques, symbolist ideas, synchronicity and dreams to construct my stories. Recurring themes include (but are not exclusive to) death, rebirth, the nature and expansion of consciousness, self-destruction and discovery… There is a kind of pre-apocalyptic tension throughout, balanced (I hope) with a sense of humor that stops it all from getting too serious…”
