Okokume, the pseudonym behind Laura Mas Hernandez, is best known for her iconic character. Cosmic Girl, the pink-haired spirit with turquoise skin is the universe’s messenger who emphasizes the importance of protecting the environment. She travels in space and tends to planets in need by restoring them to their former glory. Through her, Okokume has exhibited in Tokyo, UTOPIA (Ginza), REALITY (JPS Gallery, Tokyo), and other major cities worldwide such as K11 Art Space in Hong Kong.
Okokume’s Lowbrow-inspired style of painting reflects the influence of Japanese manga, American cartoons and street culture. Her gleeful and colourful works transport the audience into the universe of Cosmic Girl and her companions, spreading positive messages they believe in. Okokume’s cheerful and positive style is met with much popularity, making her one of the fastest-growing contemporary artists.
The name of the collection is “Our feelings”. Okokume wanted to represent all those childhoods affected by wars, where she appeared on TV as a metaphor for changing their roles. And where butterflies symbolize the lives that are lost at sea. She believes that as an artist, she needs to externalize what affects her most, positively or negatively.
The Okokume x CASETiFY Collection includes several phone case designs featuring Cosmic Girl and Dino, and are available for iPhone and Android Models. A number of designs will also be available for AirPods cases, magsafe chargers, air tag holders and iPad cases.
