About Bedtime Bunnies Peter’s Bedtime Bunnies are original resin figures hand made and produced by Peter himself in his Brooklyn studio. They have garnered much popularity and a huge following through this past year. This will be the first time the figures will be presented in an exhibition of custom works.
“Bedtime Bunnies Imagined on a late night inspired by fairy tales and children’s books the image of bunnies wearing bunnie-slippers came to mind and so became these sleepwalking companions to those long magical nights. It’s been one full year since the bunnies debuted last Spring with many colors, variations and form. We continue to bring you new things from their world. Stay up with them. Peter Kato is an artist who explores the subjects of imagination & sleep through toy sculpting, illustration & painting. He spends his time in his Brooklyn studio dreaming up curious bunnies, robots and clever animals.”
