A Fusion of East and West:

From an early age, HOLLOH was inspired by a diverse range of artistic influences, including 80s manga and anime from Japan, iconic TV shows like Speed Racer and Ultraman, classic artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Edgar Degas, as well as punk rock, metal, techno, and EDM music. This eclectic mix of inspirations allowed HOLLOH to develop a distinctive artistic style that fuses elements of Japanese Harajuku fashion with Western pop-art. HOLLOH's favorite modern band is Babymetal.

Dreamie's unique personal voice and tone, which are precocious, smart, irreverent, bright, and positive, have helped her connect with fans and admirers worldwide.

HOLLOH's artistic process typically starts with sketching out ideas and concepts, followed by refining and iterating on these initial sketches. They often experiment with various techniques and mediums, such as digital illustration, painting, and even sculpture, to bring their creations to life. This willingness to explore new artistic horizons has allowed HOLLOH to continuously push the boundaries of their creative expression.

A Lasting Legacy:

Through their art and designs, HOLLOH aims to spread joy, inspire creativity, and promote a sense of unity and acceptance among people from all walks of life. By merging Japanese and Western cultural concepts in their work, HOLLOH has created a visual language that transcends boundaries and resonates with a global audience.

    Absolutely love the Alien Usagi character at the top of this page! I bought the t-shirt and found that it is my favorite go-to item of clothing when I want to feel comfortable and chill but still look sharp and sport some style!
