FriendsWithYou

FriendsWithYou (FWY) is the fine art collective based in Miami, Florida, founded by Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III in 2002, that began by creating sculpture later categorized as designer toys, particularly plush and wood toys, as well as art installations, playgrounds, published works, performance art, animation and multimedia projects.

Friends With You toys are given personas described in booklet-style tags included with the dolls. The toys are produced in small numbers, and are usually not re-released. FWY has participated in Art Basel in Miami and Pictoplasma in Berlin. FWY has also worked alongside brands like Nike, MTV, Aol, Volkswagen, and Coca-Cola.
