Joseph Watson Collection to host a red-carpet Animation Premiere event on June 10th.
Artist / designer Sean Danconia’s dynamic take on the comic & animation worlds has made him a household name among Pop-Art aficionados. Recent exhibitions of his work include Disney’s Wonderground Gallery (Disneyland® Resort), Mouche Gallery, Hero Complex and Sotheby’s. The SupaPop universe to debut at Licensing Expo 2015 is Danconia’s latest hyper-inventive imagination explosion. Inspired and set in the multi-pop-cultural city of San Francisco, Danconia’s universe masterfully superglues Gaming, Comics, Anime, Cinema and Music into the ultimate licensing launch. SupaPop functions as both a Creative Lab for his latest inventions and an umbrella brand kicking-out new characters, collections and baby-brands. Aimed at a wide demographic – from tweens, teens and tastemakers of all ages – SūpāPop rolls-out a range of categories starting with apparel, accessories, home furnishings, toys/collectibles, gaming and apps. Having opened last year’s Anime Expo 2014 with his original animation feature, Danconia’s SūpāPop is already garnering attention from top creative studios catering to a host of media platforms. SūpāPop’s premier game offering will feature “My Starling” in a futuristic-Dim Sum adventure, in collaboration with 5 Elements Entertainment. The SūpāPop story universe unfolds as a Time-Capsule-Toy city, created and sealed in Sixties San Francisco… set to POP! open in 2016. Inside is the future – of our past – a retro futurist rainbow youthquake! SūpāPop’s irreverent character set and eye-popping visuals are inspired by 60’s Animation, Design, Pop Art & Music, along with a collage of cultural kitsch from the “flower-power” capital of the world. As with Danconia’s previous brand collections and characters—developed for Disneyland’s Vault 28, Saks 5th Avenue, Fred Segal, Hot Topic and PacSun—SupaPop targets hip, cutting edge retailers. Plans for SūpāPop retail capsules are also in the works, building on the success of Danconia’s “Artist in Residence” Pop-Up Shop at Downtown Disney® District. About: SupaPop is the brainchild of Sean Danconia, father of the Pop-Fusion art movement, released in collaboration with new media creative group – ENJIN FACTORY – based in Beverly Hills, California.
