Coinciding with the release of the hardcover collectible book Hello Kitty, Hello Art! which features works of art inspired by Sanrio characters including the iconic Hello Kitty as well as My Melody, Keroppi, Badtz-Maru, Little Twin Stars and more, KNOWN Gallery in Los Angeles was the stage for a dazzling celebratory exhibition as well. New works were seen from the likes of POSE, 64 Colors, AIKO, Caia Koopman, DABS MYLA, Kenton Parker, Niagara, Shepard Fairey and Simone Legno – with custom chandeliers by Adam Wallacavage and a neon installation by RISK — all of whom incorporated a rainbow of Sanrio characters. The book can currently be purchased at Amazon for $21 USD.
