Not only do they inspire each other in their art activities, but they have also worked together on Susumu Mukai's live music project "Zongamin".
Born in Osaka, Japan, musician Susumu Mukai aka Zongamin moved to the U.K. at the age of 11 and spent his teenage years at a free school known as "Summerhill". While at RCA, he started his own music project called "Zongamin" and signed a contract with a major record company, XL recordings. He performed live all over the world and made a name for himself among enthusiasts in the early 2000's. In recent years, he has also played bass in the band “Floating Points” and “Cave Slave” (Thomas Bullock & Misha Hollenbach) and has returned to 2018 with the EP, "O!”. All artwork for Zongamin's albums, flyers, etc. are created by the artist himself.
Graphic artist from London. Graduated from the Royal College of Art (RCA). He was greatly influenced by UK counterculture such as psychedelia, punk, and dub/sound system, which became the source of inspiration for his artwork. He has been continuously collaborating with various major brands from high fashion to street culture such as Undercover, Braindead, Porter, and Stella McCartney, as well as working on campaigns and concept designs for Lego Movie, Snoop Dogg, Thee Oh Sees, and many others. He has also demonstrated his creativity in the field of campaign and concept design for the entertainment industry. His popular comic book series "Tales From Greenfuzz" tells the psychedelic story of Vegetables vs. the Junk Food Army, and he also creates figurines. While working in a variety of fields, he has actively exhibited his work around the world, including at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
