okokume is an artist from Spain known for the work of the iconic character "Cosmic Girl".
The pink-haired spirit "Cosmic Girl" with turquoise skin is a messenger of the universe who emphasizes the importance of protecting the environment. She travels through space and restores the planet in need.
Her painting style is inspired by lowbrow art and reflects the influence of Japanese manga, American cartoons and street culture.
The cheerful and colorful tones that fill the screen invite the audience to the world of Cosmic Girl and their companions and convey the positive message they believe in.

This solo exhibition entitled "Utopia" will showcase canvas and bronze works created under the theme of "Can a perfect world be realized?"
Please take this opportunity to enjoy the world of okokume's work in Ginza.

Artist statement

This exhibition is centered around the important question, "Can a perfect world be realized?" After addressing the current refugees and climate crisis in my last solo exhibition, Reality, I began to imagine Plan B: Utopia, a perfect new world without damage, where no one would be the victim of man-made disaster. It's a fantasy. The word "utopia" was coined by Thomas More for "Utopia" (1516). In "Utopia" (1516), Moa envisions a complex, self-contained community set on an island, where people share a common culture and lifestyle. Utopia is a Greek word taken from eutopos, which means "good place", and refers to an imaginary world where everything is perfect. Under intense globalization, we are more connected to each other than ever before. In some way, we are a common entity that shares our responsibilities and obligations to the world.
