On Sunday, October 14th (1pm-6pm), the Known Gallery in Los Angeles will be holding book release party for Hello Kitty, Hello Art!, a hardcover collectible book featuring works of art inspired by Sanrio characters including of course – the beloved Hello Kitty. Upping the ante, a group exhibition of all new art will be on display including custom chandeliers by Adam Wallacavage, a neon installation by RISK, and new works by 64 Colors, AIKO, Caia Koopman, DABS MYLA, Kenton Parker, Niagara, Shepard Fairey and Simone Legno — all incorporating a rainbow of Sanrio characters. Of note, the event will also feature over thirty new paintings by graffiti artist POSE (see video below).
“Join Sanrio and featured artists from the book to celebrate the release of Hello Kitty, Hello Art!
