Kiely’s mark

Kiely’s mark
Kiely Jenkins, a cool and funny guy and creative genius and innovator passed recently. Kiely was one of the original Fun Factory artists,
his “mondo sculpture” style influenced many. From his friend Claw…

“New York native Kiely Jenkins was one of the most talented and lovable people I have ever known. The international Tokyo toy craze was really copied off of Kiely’s art and aesthetic that he pioneered in the early 1980′s, with his miniature figurines with exaggerated features and tiny detailed dioramas, and was never credited for, or given his due props. His family, friends and fans are surely at a loss with his passing. RIP OBDEWL X.”
