Kawaii Universe: "THE SOUND OF CUTENESS"
"...Kawaii Universe is dedicated to the Japanese worship of cuteness (kawaii), artist Valentina turns art's relationship with commerce on its head.
Painstakingly, handmade stickers masquerade as mass-produced manga decals and you can walk out with a beautiful piece..."
- The Guardian, Jamie Thomson, April 2013
Kawaii Universe is somewhat of a phenomenon and enjoys a cult following! Miami-based designer Valentina's claim to fame, among other notable awards
and works, (Scholastic book, Kawaii Lucky Koi - App game & interactive iBook) is her handmade vinyl stickers that feature her numerous Kawaii Universe original designs. The stickers have been feverishly collected by 10's of thousands of people of all ages, worldwide.
Working overtime for the last four years, Kawaii Universe is based in the Wynwood Arts District, Florida. First, in her large design studio & shop, and
since August 2013, with her pop-shop and exhibit at the Harold Golen Gallery, Wynwood.
