It may come as no surprise that we would list Japanese artist Misaki Kawai as one of our numero uno fav artists here at Odd Pears HQ. She’s internationally renowned for her humorous, sincere, playful and goofy work. Spanning across painting and music, to sculpture and installation, Misaki’s work looks naive but this lady does not mess around. She’s shown with some of the world’s largest institutions and collaborated with incredible brands, and has mad respect globally.
Her latest project is a super collaboration with Danish design company and shop Tiger. ‘Play with Misaki Kawai’ took a year and a half in the making, and finally burst into the world last week. Tiger are all about creating products that challenge the way contemporary art is presented, busting down barriers and making the Art World more accessible to everyone in everyday life. ‘Play with Misaki Kawai’ is a collection of colourful everyday items touched by the artist’s incredibly magic aesthetic, encouraging play and fun times. From yoga mats, phone cases and backpacks to skipping ropes, play blocks and totes, each item is very special and limited edition. Using bright, bold colour palettes and simple, graphic motifs the collaboration is a true merger of Japanese and Scandinavian style and is guaranteed to make your life more playful. Available now in the 600+ Tiger stores worldwide!
