Rocky Grimes Exhibits His Silk Screen Designs in a South Beach Toy Store

What's he doing showing multimedia videos, hand printed t-shirts, and limited edition screen-prints in a toy store? This ain't Toys-R-Us. Kidrobot is a line of clothing and toys created by designer Paul Budnitz. His Munnys and Dunnys -- graffiti-inspired, cartoon-like vinyl figurines -- have been purchased by NYC's MoMa for their permanent collection.
As far as Grimes, you may know him for his clothing line Faction, fresh t-shirts with neon and pastel color palettes that depict savage scenes of hipsters behaving badly. (On one, a masked vigilante is decapitating someone else with a Casio keyboard.)
