Artist Andy Warhol once said, “Everybody [in Los Angeles is] plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.” While he might have thought this, he has instead been immortalized as a wooden Kokeshi doll. Created by Sketch.inc, Warhol’s design features his white, floppy hair, circular sunglasses, and striped black and white shirt.
A Kokeshi doll is traditionally an item that’s given as a token of friendship in the Japanese culture. Why not gift this nearly 6” tall wooden figurine to a friend who loves pop art? Warhol, with his long and varied portfolio and collaborations, is sure to inspire them to think differently.
- Andy Warhol Kokeshi doll measures 5.7" tall.
- Doll is made out of superba wood and is not suitable for young children due to the gold pigment used in the paint.
Sketch.inc is the creative studio of Becky Kemp, an artist based in South London. She started her career as an art teacher but branched out on her own in 2011 to start her commercial practice. Now, her work is inspired by a "love of Nordic design and Japanese illustration"—traits found on her beloved Kokeshi dolls.
