When we think of the most popular toys that have gone through several generations, we inevitably evoke the name of the Barbie doll, this iconic figure very popular with little girls. And as surprising as it may seem, the artist we are going to talk about today is a real fan of Barbie dolls.
Jian Yang is a strategic director of a large hotel group. But his cute sin is quite different. Jian Yang is indeed renowned for being the largest male doll collector Barbie in the world, with no less than 6,000 figurines in his possession. But he does not just collect them: on his lost time, Jian Yang, artist at heart, has fun creating wedding dresses for her Barbie ... using toilet paper.
Particularly talented with his fingers when it comes to making folding games, Jian Yang realized dresses more real than life for her Barbie using toilet paper and sometimes paper tissues. A work of precision and realism that commands respect, which you can discover in more detail on his Instagram account.
