Multimedia artist Steve Lawler tackles the fine art of perfumery.
The perfumes draw inspiration from contemporary Asia. As such, Lawler’s perfume exhibition features scents nestled in nostalgic medicinal bottles.
Contrasting the nostalgic, the perfume boxes feature a collage of upbeat anime and cartoon characters, as well as vintage photographs and Chinese lettering. Notable characters spotted include Princess Bubblegum and Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time, Snow White, Pikachu and Alice from the animated Alice in Wonderland film.
“The creation process between scent design and collage isactually very similar, for example combining unusual elements to find harmony in surprising ways,” says Mojoko.
Those unfamiliar to Mojoko should note that the designer finds inspiration in trash culture, B-movies, as well as Bollywood Films, writes Female Magazine. This same inspiration can be found in each of Mojoko’s finely crafted perfumes.
