As a part of Apportfolio’s upcoming Kawaii Art Exhibition (12.4 – 12.6) at TX Hauihai in Shanghai, the artwork model will launch a number of limited-edition sculptures together with the charming Memento Mori Girl resin sculpture by Japanese artist Kohei Yamada. Based on an authentic portray, Memento Mori Girl contains a charming blue-haired woman in a floral print costume and purple boots.
With the cranium sample on the woman’s sq. base alluding to the title (Latin for ‘Remember You Must Die), the bitter sweet pieces is both a reminder of the common eventuality we all share and seemingly a hopeful expression of a life yet to be lived. As with the original painting, the resin edition draws the viewer in through the girl’s large gaze and her joyous look.
