OKOKUME

Spain | B. 1985

Okokume, also known as Laura Mas Hernandez, is best known for her signature character Cosmic Girl. The pink-haired spirit with turquoise skin is the universe’s messenger to spread the importance of protecting the environment. She travels in space and tends to the planets in need and restore them to their former glory. 

Her Lowbrow style of creating reflected the influences of Japanese manga, American cartoon and street culture. Her gleeful and colorful works transports the audience into the universe of Cosmic Girl and her companions, preaching the positive messages they believe in. Her cheerful and positive works are met with much popularity, making her one of the fastest growing contemporary artists.

Okokume was born in 1985 in Barcelona. She graduated from the renowned Llotja Advanced School of Art and Design in Barcelona. Her works have been widely exhibited in galleries and art fairs in cities around the world, including Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipei, Seoul, Los Angeles and Berlin, to name but a few. Her biggest solo exhibition to date was held in 2018 at the K11 Art Mall in Hong Kong and achieved numerous satisfying auction records in 2020. She now lives and shares a studio with her partner, artist Okrabelo in Barcelona.

 

Okokume的代表作是Cosmic Girl系列。Cosmic Girl是一位擁有著粉紅色長髮和祖母綠色肌膚的小精靈,負責為宇宙在星際傳遞愛護環境的訊息,並幫助荒蕪的星球回復生機。

她的作品受日本漫畫、美國卡通和街頭文化影響,有著低眉藝術風格。她筆下的Cosmic Girl和同伴們色彩繽紛,活潑開朗,充滿正能量,因此作品大受歡迎,使她成為發展得最快的當代藝術家之一。
