A Chinese platform toy exhibition called "Walk to Mars--Umars" will be held in Beijing in May.

Platform toys, also called canvas toys, are a kind of art that represents different themes with graphic drawings and designs on the surface of blank toys.

The Beijing News reported the organizer said over 200 Chinese artists from thirty-five cities were invited or had applied to join in this creative activity. The organizers have already sent the original toy models to artists so they can make their creations. In May, these artists will bring their finished toys to the exhibition in Beijing.

The exhibition is expected to show painted Umars toys, skateboard and sketches, representing avant-garde Chinese graphic designs and the trend of painted art.
