J Balvin and Louis de Guzman Team up on 'SpongeBob SquarePants' Figures

Celebrating 20 years of the popular Nickelodeon show.

To celebrate 20 years of the popular Nickelodeon franchise, Chicago-based visual artist Louis de Guzman teamed up with Latin superstar J Balvin on a series of SpongeBob Squarepants limited figures. The vinyl sculptures feature the main characters of the show, Spongebob and Patrick, standing at eight and ten inches respectively.

“I am beyond honored, humbled and forever grateful to be teaming up with my brother Jose (J Balvin) to help celebrate SpongeBob SquarePants’ 20th anniversary. This brought our respective teams and Nickelodeon together in such an organic way, and we created something out of love and respect for this iconic character,” said de Guzman. J Balvin added: “I’ve been a big SpongeBob fan for years. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to combine some of my own style with the distinctive vision of an artist I respect as much as Louis – while honoring the 20th Anniversary of such an iconic show that has brought joy to both myself and millions of TV fans. This is for the culture and God bless the Latino Gang.”

The sculptures will be go on sale online via LouisDeGuzman.com on July 31 at 12PM CST. They retail for $375 USD each and are available in an edition of 500.
