Daniel Arsham has teased a new collaboration with Pokémon and Uniqlo UT. This project follows a sculpture prototype of a Dior Saddle bag that Arsham created last month.

Earlier today, Arsham took to Instagram a short animated clip of Pikachu encountering a large sculpture of itself. The teaser’s animation mirrors Pokémon’s earlier aesthetic style when the show first debuted, offering an intriguing contrast between Arsham’s modern concept and the retro-inspired visuals. According to the post, Arsham is “the first visual artist to be granted access to the Pokémon Archive” and has been working with the Pokémon company and its animators for the past year. Furthermore, Arsham notes that he intends on having his “work infiltrate the Pokémon universe.” The upcoming Uniqlo UT collaboration will be one capsule out of a lineup of other projects with Pokémon to be unveiled later on.

Daniel Arsham’s collaboration with Pokémon and Uniqlo UT will be releasing on April 24 on Uniqlo’s website, globally.

Over the past year, I have had the fortunate opportunity to work with the @pokemon company and the animators from their studio. As the first visual artist to be granted access to the Pokémon Archive, my intention with the project was to not only bring the universe of Pokémon and the characters into my work, but to have my work infiltrate the Pokémon universe, as well. As a part of my collaboration with Pokémon, a collection of designs with @uniqlo and @uniqlo.ut will be releasing April 24th online globally. My studio worked with the design team from the original series to create this animation, even using the real voice of Pikachu. Join me in Kanto over the next year as this special project rolls out. ?
