Global Japanese retailer UNIQLO has announced the appointment of artist Kosuke Kawamura as Creative Director of UT, the fashion conglomerate’s graphic T-shirt line that celebrates its 20th-anniversary this year.

Holding many titles such as collage artist, graphic designer, and art director, Kawamura has provided art and graphics for a wide range of brands in the past including BEAMS, G-Shock, NEIGHBORHOOD, Cyberpunk 2077, © SAINT M ××××××, and UT for a Dragon Ball collection in 2019. Kawamura now brings his rich expertise and knowledge in pop culture to UT, delivering new LifeWear, built to express the individuality of each wearer and the opportunity to encounter new types of culture.

“I am delighted to have been appointed Creative Director for UT,” Kawamura commented. “By offering T-shirts presenting culture from many different genres, I want to make the brand a gateway for people to encounter something they hadn’t known about before and provide an opportunity to expand people’s knowledge. I also plan to reach out to young artists in Japan and around the world, and make UT a platform for the next generation of artists.”
