SELFIE by Ken Kagami

£28

From Homer Simpson to Snoopy, characters play a central role in Ken Kagami’s drawing practice. Every morning when he arrives at his studio, the artist chooses from his collection of masks, costumes and other props, creates a character and takes a phone selfie in his bathroom mirror – the result by turns surreal, strange, hilarious and unnerving.

A warm-up exercise of sorts, this process has become a key part of his daily routine, foregrounding all of his other artistic experiments. In SELFIE, his first-ever photographic publication and his first book published by Hato Press, he shares 114 of the resulting self-portraits.
