for years, I have been admiring this doll Artist’s works, I know him so little, he is from South Korea & sells his OOAK dolls on eBay. “YU” may be his last name. I have never seen him featured in doll magazines, but his amazing works are way better than those who featured in the doll magazines. I think he is the best! I give him 5 Star ratings! 😀
here are a few dolls he auctioned on eBay:
he hardly paints Barbie dolls, maybe its b/c the price of his works is beyond Barbie Collectors’ grasp. If I had money, I would love to have him paint a Lea doll for me! I think he has made all the Barbie repainters like kindergarteners. lol here is a Barbie doll he painted:
if you are interested in more of his works, just search “repaint by Yu” on ebay, you will find him.
