New art project, Be aware of your own existence… Control Bear

Contact お問い合わせ


  • En

    Control Bear is a project with a distinct twist of black humor,
    which surpasses the traditional notion of a character and moves into the realms of art.

    Through a long period of trial and error in multiple mediums
    including typography, collage and illustration,
    the artist felt that the best way to share his message
    with many people was by using this character as a medium.

    By creating an image that is so unexpected and unusual - a cute,
    innocent bear taking off his own head - the artist communicates his message:
    you control everything, be strong willed and don’t be controlled
    by others or just follow what others expect you to do.

    While being extremely simple this piece of art holds a strong message.

    Control bearのブラックユーモアを内包するフォルムは

    タイポグラフィ, フォトコラージュ, イラストなどあらゆる手法による試行錯誤が繰り返されたが



Control Bear Special Collaboration: No.6 .efiLevol× Control Bear

Control Bear Special Collaboration: No.6 .efiLevol× Control Bear


人の中に必ず存在する“愛”に焦点を当て、ミリタリー、ワーク、トラッド等の完成されたベーシックを理解した上でジャンルレスにデザインし構築していくブラ ンド。思想的アイディアのもとに、ディテールとパターンにこだわり、ギミックや皮肉的ユーモアを織り交ぜた服のデザインが特徴的。


Producing wear for both men and women, it is in partnership with many highly regarded fashion outlets throughout Tokyo and internationally. Operating not only within the realm of fashion, but also in areas of creative media such as artwork, visual production, music, and so on, in a fresh attempt to overturn the stereotypes of fashion. It continually earns for itself the daily attention of many beyond Japan’s shores, and is truly deserving of being named a “representative brand” of Tokyo.
