Kawaii art and all its adorableness has emerged in popularity throughout the last few years and it’s no surprise why. More than just a style of art, Kawaii is a strong part of Japanese culture that has evolved to an aesthetic appreciated globally. The word “kawaii” is a Japanese concept that translates closest to the word “cute” in English. Whether you are looking for cute characters, vibrant colors, or something more abstract, kawaii art can be found in many forms, from paintings and drawings to digital art.
