BAKENEKO® is an illustration and design brand created by Tomomi Collins.
The brand started with the artist's hobby of sticker 'slapping' around the city of Tokyo. This included drawing on different types of stickers and pasting them around the city as street art. The goal was to share the art with the people of Tokyo. BAKENEKO started @bakeneko.bakeneko as his place to share the sticker illustrations with the rest of the world.
The work of BAKENEKO is bright, fun, and crazy but with a slightly dark undertone.
The characters of the art experience conflicts within them that many people face in real life. Through these characters, human emotions, struggles, and polarity are expressed.
Not "Bake Neko".
Definitely not "Baked Neko".
Bakeneko (ba-kae-neh-ko) are cat spirits, or "yokai", from Japanese mythology. They are known to be mischievous and shapeshift into other forms.
BAKENEKO is here to shapeshift your brain drawers.
