His art has straddled the realms of streetwear, techwear, and industrial design.

Daniel Arsham has made a career making works that reference leftovers from our nostalgic culture, like Pokémon, vintage cars, and Bart Simpson. A show at Galerie Ron Mandos in 2019 featured plaster casts of a Mickey Mouse figure that had been wrapped in cloth and rope, while a show in 2018 at Galerie Perrotin in New York featured a full-sized plaster cast of the Delorean from Back to the Future.
Daniel Arsham has collaborated with Dior, Rimowa, Tiffany’s, Kith, adidas, Uniqlo, and XIAOMI.
The list of things that Daniel Arsham has turned into what he refers to as “fictional archeology” is ever-expanding. We’ve seen the artist use his signature style on Porsche sports cars, Pokémon characters, basketballs, and the latest item to be decorated with his eroding aesthetic is a smartphone.
