This month, UNIQLO will launch one of two NEO-MIYAGE UT collections celebrating 13 contemporary Japanese artists whose works are exhibited at NANZUKA gallery in Tokyo. From a robot made out of sushi to a metallic rendering of Japanese Akita dog Hachikō, the graphic T-shirts showcase unique artistic perspectives on Japanese motifs. Artists spotlighted in the collection include acclaimed Japanese artists Keiichi Tanaami, Hajime Sorayama and Yoshirotten.

Comprised of 14 T-shirts in total, the UNIQLO UT collection offers a range of authentic pop culture and art graphics from around the world. Highlights of the first range include Harumi Yamaguchi‘s ultra-realistic airbrush illustration of an apprentice geisha, Hiroki Tsukuda’s design of Tokyo Tower created with a digital collage technique and Haroshi’s print of his signature wood figures.

For the second NEO-MIYAGE collection, UNIQLO will feature works by Eric Parker, Julia Chiang, Todd James and more. Releasing for $14.90 USD each, T-shirts from the first UT collection will drop February 17 on UNIQLO’s website and at select in-store locations.

In case you missed it, UNIQLO linked up with legendary street artist Futura for a range of co-branded apparel items.
