Hello Kitty in Wonderland Art & Exhibition

This weekend Sanrio opened an exhibition called Hello Kitty Wonderland in Nagoya, Japan. Apart from funny optical illusions and a card game maze, the event location delights with lots of cute Alice in Wonderland inspired Hello Kitty art, created by the woman behind the cat, Japanese character designer and illustrator Yuko Yamaguchi. Just like the white bunny designs, the kawaii art of earlier successful Hello Kitty exhibitions show her strong influence on Sanrio’s most famous character, as seen in her lovely strawberry designs. We are sure Hello Kitty is in very good hands and can’t wait for her next cute creations.
