Pop Icons Turned Into Nice Kokeshi Dolls

Becky Kemp, an English illustrator and sculptor, found a new passion through Japanese traditional dolls known as Kokeshi. This real phenomenon in the Land of the Rising Sun appeared 150 years ago and usually represents icons or famous people. The artist distorted tradition by adapting it to stars of pop culture with a huge dose of humor. On the program: Prince, David Bowie, Woody Allen, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso or Charlie Chaplin.
