“Arty Afternoon” Print

Japanese-born Misaki Kawai’s colorful art brims with fluffy sculptures, emoji characters and furry creatures. Such is the case in Kawai’s “Arty Afternoon,” a bold, five-color silkscreen print on Tiepolo paper that features a peeping pink cat. Just like the artist’s other artwork, “Arty Afternoon” (in an edition of 30 prints) immerses viewers in Kawai’s whimsical and wonderful world.

Planet Plush Keyring

Imbued with Misaki Kawai’s bold and playful style, this plush keyring is colorful, textured and sweet. The fluffy planet has been embroidered with the word “home” in Kawai’s trademark, childlike lettering. While it doesn’t resemble Earth, or even another familiar planet, it’s a nod to the idea that home isn’t a place, but a feeling.

With images from the multidisciplinary artist’s fourth solo show at The Hole, this saddle-stitch bound book provides inspiration and off-kilter escapism.
