Title : “My Neighbor KILAS”
The appeal of Miyazaki’s films is that they can be enjoyed equally by adults and children. While children enjoy the innocence and naivety of the films, adults can interpret their meanings in an ominous sense. My Neighbor Totoro is such a film where the lines of life and death are blurred, giving us the ability to transcend perceptions of what is real and unreal, good and evil.
It is granted that Totoro is a mystical creature that only Mei and Satsuki can see. His presence is linked to the trauma of their sick mother who is on death’s door. Some can go as far to say that Totoro is death itself, alleviating the girls to the fact that they will lose their mother and maybe even themselves in this unforgiving world.
KILAS gives Totoro a skull and scythe in response to this theory. Totoro is now able to embody his true self as the grim reaper.
Artist Biography :
KILAS founded by Zahir Sanosi in early 2002, KILAS is the moniker that he adopts for his work, which ranges across multiple platforms involving illustrations and design for various artefacts of popular culture, including silkscreen posters, t-shirts, skateboards, or any given blank walls.
Zahir’s work is at times controversial and contradictory as they are representations of the struggle between his beliefs as well as personal and public politics. This is art that will not be easy on the eyes and remains proudly so. This is counter culture work that demands to have an impact, that true to form, will mirror his lifestyle and current surroundings. Zahir’s work is fused with passion and the heartbeat of underground counter culture.
