JapanLA is curating the Art Show, with 80 artists doing their take on Hello Kitty. The original art pieces will be for sale and part of the proceeds will go to the charity, L.A. Works. We will also be releasing prints of some of the art at each of the events, like this Gary Baseman painting.
Here are some pics of some of the art available at the show: Buff Monster!
This is a piece done by Jason Mecier. He made a big Hello Kitty face out of Hello Kitty product...so cute!
This is a 7 foot sculpture, by Colin Christian. It is made out of fiberglass and silicon...and the whiskers and the lights at the base light up and change color...so awesome!
There will be many surprises at the exhibition...like this super secret interactive theme park experience, by FriendsWithYou!
