Cutesy Pop Surrealism
The pair met in art school in 2001 and have worked together since. Together they have created a world of Kawaii characters with a colorful, humorous pop aesthetic. Along with creating artwork, the two have also been involved in creating collectible vinyl toys. Too cute!!
Implications - Mike and Katie share a love of meat, puppies and "cute, spiky characters" which keeps their friendship close. The featured images by Tado include those of a little girl making silly faces and brightly colored landscape scenes that are full of pop surrealism. Tado's works are full of fun, creativity and adventure.
