“Domo Arigato” as a series takes a look at the paralleled cultural influences of early childhood many of us have experienced and or have seen exhibited today. Classic Japanese cultural icons are infused with luxury branding brilliantly creating an conversation around the identities of the youth today.
Mega Man meets Comme, Sonic meets Louis Vuitton, in a iconoclash that’s a truly astute observation of today’s influences. We are looking forward to seeing how the series is utilized within the real world. We’ve included an synopsis about the series directly from the artist Mago as well: “Whether Sailor Moon, Son Goku or Pokemon – all these Japanese anime figures were a big part of our childhood. My biggest inspiration for this project was to combine classic Japanese anime characters with luxury brands like Gucci, LV or Chanel to show the brand affinity of the Japanese culture. The series is also strongly influenced by my unique illustration style I’ve created over the past few years that is characterized by a strong love for details.Take a closer look and discover my passion for anime and luxury brands.”
