Bernal Aguilar, born in 1981 and widely known by his artistic moniker “Tokebi,” is an acclaimed illustrator, artist, and university lecturer, renowned for his distinctive skull art featuring vibrant neon colors and kitsch aesthetic.
As a leading figure in the contemporary “Memento Mori” art movement, Tokebi’s work serves as a vivid reminder of life’s fleeting nature, encouraging a life lived with intensity, love, and enjoyment. His rise to popularity began during his time in Korea, where Tokebi’s unique skull art, sold on the streets of Seoul, captured the local media’s attention. His talents extended to poster design for local bands and spearheading a local artistic collaborative exhibition. Tokebi’s breakthrough moment came in 2019 when the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Mastodon handpicked him to create a bespoke skull art piece for their European tour that year. His art style, known for its blend of science fiction and cyberpunk themes, features a retro psychedelic neon palette.His skull art often narrates the tales of a mystical alien race of psychedelic skulls, weaving spirituality and folklore into his thematic palette.
Esteemed as a prominent figure in the Guatemalan lowbrow movement and a respected advocate for NFTs on the global stage, Tokebi continues to influence the world of skull art and poster design.

Our theme is retro-futuristic alien skulls traveling the galaxy and in time, searching for adventures. Our Skull art is designed to feel vintage but with sci-fi and cyberpunk aesthetics, inspired by the 60s psychedelia, retro sci-fi movies, and our ancient cultures, their traditions, and mythology.
Each of our skull designs tells a story of these alien skulls and their exploits across the galaxy and on our planet Earth, where they enjoy their time the most.
