Laura Mas alias Okokume is a Spanish visual artist based in the port city of Mataro, Barcelona.

Combining her soft spot for the low-brow art movement with its humorous, pop surrealistic imagery and its roots in underground comic, punk and surf culture with her fondness for Japanese pop culture and its rich traditional heritage, this Barcelona based artist gives the image of the Geisha a new appearance. These works show the dualities of life and death, prettiness and its transience, the pinnacle of beauty and the beginning of decomposition.
