Oso Polar: The Story of an Art-Maker


I’ve been making lots of conceptual and sketchy design models for this new project and believe me, making models is REALLY difficult, a lot more than it looks! Struggling for one whole day and I may just get a 5-storey building at a scale of 1:200 done if I’m lucky enough. So imagine my jaw-drops when I saw Oso’s dolls and toys and tiny adorable things ;) While mine are pathetically stuck together with pieces of masking tapes, Oso’s are magically...errr...DONE! I don’t know how they were made, but they were made beautifully, without UHU glue dripped all over. Ugh! Jealous! ;) Anyway, enjoy and see if they’re going to bring back some of your childhood memories.. 

Hello, I’m Oso Polar, I make dolls and creatures and other stuff. Currently I’m studying Economics at university and this distracts me from the arts very much, so I hope one day doll-making will be my main job.

I started making dolls about 3 years ago and since then I’ve been trying to define my own techniques and using them to define myself. My greatest inspiration is the wild life, I tried to make some girl and boy dolls but soon I realised that animals played a more important role in my works. Animals are cute and I like the way they don’t need to speak to express their emotions.

I haven’t yet decided what kind of toys I should make for life… I wish I could create something that allow children to play with them, I don’t like static sculptures, because the fun is in playing with the toy, moving its parts, making stories and taking pictures. But on the other hand I wish my works could become real art objects one day. 

My favourite artist is Red Nose Studio, I also like works done by some other contemporary doll-makers, but it’s more like I love two toys produced by this artist and one toy produced by that, and Red Nose is magnificent in everything he does!

I’m still trying to improve my skills and when I gain more experience I hope I’ll be able to make more and better toys! Anyway, in the mean time, anyone interested in adopting a toy please e-mail me at maya.kirill@mail.ru ;) I’d love to hear from you!
