Today we roundup and showcase a selection of art known as Kawaii:
“Kawaii is a Japanese word that is roughly translated to mean cute, pretty, dear, charming, or lovely. It can be used to describe a person or objects and has become more known outside of Japan as a result of the growing interest in anime and Japanese pop culture.” -All Things Kawaii
I have personally come across Kawaii artwork when it was first showcased to me through the works of Lauren Thompson, who created a Kawaii themed wallpaper design for the June Calendar. Showcased today is a wonderfully selected roundup of Digital art in the style of the Japanese Kawaii; these astonishing graphic designs are bright, colorful and cute.
All the works showcased in today’s roundup are the respective copyright of the artist’s featured, each piece of wor is linked back to their original location online.
