Building on its survey of authentic pop culture and art graphics, UNIQLO‘s UT division recently announced its latest collaboration with contemporary artist Daniel Arsham.
Launching as part of an art collaboration project with Pokémon, the partnership sees Arsham become the first fine artist to be granted access to the beloved Japanese franchise’s archive. The latest expression of Arsham’s creative concept of “fictional archaeology” sees quintessential characters become sculptures dated 1,000 years from today.
Comprised of seven styles for men, women and children, the monotone graphics feature crystallized sketches of such emblematic Pokémon like Pikachu, Mewtwo and Jigglypuff. The prints translated onto T-shirts stand as pieces of “wearable art” under a sculptural collection titled Relics of Kanto Through Time.
Take a full look at the Daniel Arsham x Uniqlo UT Pokémon collaboration releasing April 24 mid-morning EDT above.
