Does not look a day over 1-year since 1974…
To celebrate the global occasion with millions of others on its 45th birthday, the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles has decided to organize and launch a huge collective exhibit of the Hello Kitty character for the Hello Kitty lovers. Launched on June 29th 100 artists from all over the world will be showing their works of art inspired by Sanrio’s iconic character and designer Yuko Shimizu alongside names with the likes of Okuda San Miguel, Andrew Brandou, Kazuki Takamatsu.
Hello Kitty appears for the first time on a Japanese purse. Then came school-related products such as notebooks, pens, cases and in a short time, the tender character became so popular that it invaded every object, from mobile phones to kitchen utensils, from car to jewelry, from sex toys to musical instruments, from coffins to Ferrari.
