About The Founder
Hey! I’m Kari, a 24 year old Digital Artist and Entrepreneur from Toronto, Canada. Bangerooo started in 2017 after I got an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil to take notes on in university. I quickly fell in love with using it to create digital art, with the app Procreate. For me, creating art is similar to meditation and I'm so thrilled to be able to share my imagination with the world.
About the Brand
I believe that regular/off the shelf fashion is way lame and censored. I want to create a brand with its own identity where I can bring in a fresh perspective of profanity and outside of the box thinking into apparel and accessories.
For me, fashion should be fun and IN YOUR FACE. I want to create clothing that causes other people to stare, giggle, or think "WTF is that person wearing"! Basically, this brand is for people who want to EXPRESS THEIR WEIRD through fashion.
The name Bangerooo was inspired by the word “banger”, which, growing up, was slang to describe anything from a hot track of music to a great party. This term was coined to identify the brand’s unique aesthetic and to establish my brand as a fun-loving and uncensored genre of fashion. I hope that one day, this brand will be a global synonym with all things weird and abnormal!
Long-term, my goal is for Bangerooo to have an environmentally neutral impact and to use only biodegradable packaging to help protect our planet. I also hope to use my platform to educate others on issues that are important to me such as climate change. In the future, I would like stimulate social and environmental growth by funding grass roots organizations that enact change on a local scale.
So... Why Aliens?
I think the best part about regularly using aliens in my art is that anyone can relate to them - regardless of their race, gender, or body type.
Also, I mean, space is crazy. Sometimes I get super sad thinking of all those amazing things that exist out there that I'll never be able to experience outside of my own mind.
