Takashi Murakami, Flower smile, 2011
Takashi Murakami acclaimed Japanese artist known for his innovative “Superflat” aesthetic, combining classical Japanese art with contemporary Japanese pop culture. Often categorised alongside artists working within the tradition of Pop Art, such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Jeff Koons, Murakami’s work has achieved widespread fame beyond the art world. His innovative “Superflat” aesthetic, combining classical Japanese art with contemporary Japanese pop culture, has made him one of the most innovative artists working today. He continues to explore the links between traditional printmaking and Japanese styles of comics in post-war society in his highly graphic, vibrantly coloured works. Despite its outward playfulness, Murakami’s art acts as a cultural critique with subversive undertones hidden in its imagery. Born on February 1, 1962 in Tokyo, Japan, where he currently lives and works, Murakami has embraced commerce through the founding Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd., an artist management agency and studio. With his popular collaboration with the fashion label Louis Vuitton, Murakami has established himself as a pioneer of promoting art as a brand. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions around the world, include those held at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Gagosian Gallery in London, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and the Versailles Palace.
