"On a beautiful autumn day Mdvanii and Rhogit-Rhogit talk openly about their bisexuality”. Mdvanii and Rhogit-Rhogit, Compiègne-Chantilly, 1993.

This famous image was used for three years during an exhibition throughout France at the FNAC galleries and also for the famous box for the Mdvanii and family dolls of the years of the exhibitions. BillyBoy* took his dolls on a "road trip" throughout France and photographed them in famous cities.

This famous box will make it's re-appearance with the new editions of Mdvanii and the "Classic Mdvanii Clone" series for winter 2011 available soon. Cheong Kwon represents them in NY. There soon will be a great new series of United States venues and projects including a book.

J. Craig Shelton III shares a Mdvanii from his collection with us

J. Craig Shelton III is a serious Mdvanii collector who has some of the rarest outfits you can imagine. He has fully grasped the reasons the artists invented Mdvanii and interacts with her as they ideally would wish. She is truly "art for contemplation" and Mr Shelton III engages in this contemplation with his amazing collection.

Here we see the immensely rare Casino prototype outfit, for which he has the entire set, yet here he uses some of the truly unusual accessories of several other unique, one-of-a-kind prototype outfits he owns making a totally unique Mdvanii look. Notice the rare Cabriolet hat worn with the ensemble. He took the photos of his collection, all the pieces being great rarities. He has a magnificent collection and the artists are always happy to see his photos which show how imaginative he is with it.
