This independent hybrid custom toys group formed at the beginning of 2009, with Fahla Fadhillah Lotan (Dila) and R. Bonar Diat Senan Putro (Otong) as members, both with different art bases. The differing interests between the two gave a certain colour to thedeoMIXBLOOD. Otong is very focused on history and myths that develoved in Java, issues about religion and identity. Meanwhile, Dila enjoys being the victim of popular culture like Hip-Hop and Rap, fashion, and maintains interest in extraterrestrial live beyond Earth. ThedeoMIXBLOOD consistenly uses toys as a medium to convey notions and visual shapes of the ideas they work on. They chose toys as toys are the second world after the real world, as anything in the world has been made into toys. Lately, thedeoMIXBLOOD have been working on a new project developing local folklore and legendary igures into action figures.
