If you’re an Uno enthusiast, you may have heard of the brand’s famed Artiste Series. The colorful versions depict quality work at the hands of well-known mavericks, and this time around, the marquee has partnered with Japanese contemporary artist – Takashi Murakami for its fifth edition.
For the novel ‘Artiste’ edition, Murakami has applied his Superflat artwork and signature characters that completely transform the humble-looking deck of cards. The latest Uno edition can be stocked as a collectible or used for playing, as per the buyer’s preference.
It features beautiful illustrations by the artist in candy colors that give it a quirky look and feel. The deck further includes four double-sided ‘Artiste Extra’ cards that, when joined together, form two poster-sized artworks.
The UNO Artiste Series: Murakami will be available for purchase on the Mattel Creations site from Friday, August 5 at 9 am PT (12 pm ET) for a price of $22. Other editions in the ‘Artiste’ series that were previously introduced include the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Nina Chanel Abney, and Shepard Fairey.
