Series of Dorimu art represents a milestone in development of a young trade mark Dorimu, which started to develop from The Story of Little Dorimu – fairytale for adults which was published last year as a result of the best work at a literary competition.
The idea to create soft sculptures from these dolls was born with the recognition that the role of the doll Dorimu started to change. Due to the more and more sophisticated and carefully designed exterior Dorimu dolls became more than just toys – they embellish many buyers’ shelves throughout Slovenia and abroad as decorative and unique products. Soon the idea to donate to these dolls some artistic value was born, which led to development of the series of Dorimu ART – set of decorative soft sculptures being presented for the first time at this exhibition Doll – more than just a toy. The selection of the exhibited sculptures is directly connected to the Story of little Dorimu; live 8 (in person) you will be greeted by 6 magical fairies, Golden fairy, the shy cricket and other characters of the story that have safely left their safe surroundings of the book’s covers.
