A highly regarded Japanese collage artist, Kosuke Kawamura becomes a contributor to Uniqlo UT’s capsule collection. He was given a chance to create a rendition of Andy Warhol’s iconic works.
With much influence of Warhol in Kosuke’s art techniques, the artist produced almost six shirts featuring the combination of the iconic pieces. Features Warhol’s famous statement “Anyone can do what I do” on the shirt’s front part, and the iconic banana in inverted color version–famous for a 1967 event, the Velvet Underground & Nico’s debut album.
Interestingly, Warhol’s soup cans were reimagined by Kawamura as it intersects with Warhol’s Marilyn diptych. Featuring another quote, “When you think about it, department stores are kind of like museums.”. Several more are the splattered paint on Warhol’s Flowers and a rendition of Warhol’s 1986 Self-Portrait.
