About This Artist
With over 25 years of international experience in puppetry, Edwin Salas began his adventure in toy art when he arrived in the United States in 2017. As a child growing up in Costa Rica, Edwin did not have the luxury of having toys and relied on his imagination for play. As an adult, he works to rectify this hole in his past by utilizing his creativity to invent toy-art inspired by the pop culture of the many countries he has lived in throughout his life.
