Keiichi Tanaami at Paul Smith

Butterfly_girl
Keiichi Tanaami, a Japanese artist and toy designer has released these typically crazy Japanese prints and vinyl toys through Paul Smith’s website and London stores. Prices start at a very reasonable £10 for a surreal and slightly scary vinyl "Wonder Girl" ornament, all the way up to £950 for a limited edition, framed print, inspired by Japanese family crests.

I love contemporary Japanese art, but unfortunately I don’t have £950 burning a hole in my pocket. I just hope they use some of the designs from both the prints and the toys for tee shirts, as I’m getting a little bored of the whimsical Americana prints and slogans or Banksy style images that seemingly adorn every single men’s t-shirt today… I just want sumfin a little different, ya know?
